Scouting Report
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.
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.
