|Has good size and excellent fundamentals for the goaltending position. Displays an exemplary work ethic, especially at lower levels (where he dominates). Is a true battler in the crease area.|
|Tends to get beaten when forced to move quickly from side to side. Durability remains an issue with him. Is also inconsistent at the National Hockey League level, despite plenty of chances.|
|Veteran depth goaltender.|
