|Has tremendous size for the goaltending position, which National Hockey League teams look for more and more these days. Displays excellent athleticism in the crease area and is a very good reactionary goalkeeper. Is good at playing his angles. In order to maximize his NHL output, he must improve his rebound control and game-to-game consistency. Also, he must adjust to the tendencies of North American shooters, as well as adjust to the smaller rinks of the National Hockey League.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Big, talented goaltender with good upside.|
