Scouting Report

Assets:
Has excellent size and handles the puck extremely well. Is quick and agile, challenges shooters, covers most of the net thanks to his size and is a confident 'keeper when at his best. Has improved his conditionning level with time.
Flaws:
Because he's so big, and because of his style, at times he can look a little slow in the crease area. Likes to play the angles, but sometimes he relies on that aspect of his game too much. Can also at times drop to his knees too early.
Career Potential:
Talented but inconsistent veteran goaltender.
