|Assets:||Owns a projectable frame, as well as the ability to be a workhorse starting netminder at lower levels. Is fairly economical in his overall movement in the crease area.|
|Flaws:||Could stand to fill out his 6-1 frame in order to maximize his starting goaltender potential for the National Hockey League game. Must also curb his penchant for letting in soft goals.|
|Career Potential:||Solid goaltender with upside.|
