Scouting Report
Was usually poised and rarely got rattled after giving up bad goals. Had good agility and the cockiness needed to play between the pipes. Was always a very well-liked teammate and made an ideal backup goaltender.
Always needed more meat on his bones, even after filling out. Would go into prolonged slumps, which always hurt his ability to cement a starting gig in the National Hockey League. His demise in the NHL came quickly.
Career Potential:
Quality backup goaltender and good teammate.
