Scouting Report

Assets:
Owned superior puck-handling and clearing skills. Was extremely active in and out of the crease area. Had the confidence of a perennial all-star puck stopper.
Flaws:
Battled an incredible string of injuries, which destroyed his development. Was rushed to the NHL too quickly, so he was quite unpolished. Was not reliable at all.
Career Potential:
Incredibly fragile, yet talented goaltender.
