Scouting Report

Assets:
Was never out of a play, and was one of the most competitive 'keepers in the league. Wasn't easily rattled and was able to bounce back from a bad goal. Owned ice water for veins. Could play a ton of minutes.
Flaws:
While he proved capable of handling heavy workloads, he wasn't as consistent when not given enough rest during the regular season. Occasionally let in a soft goal from time to time at the NHL level.
Career Potential:
Excellent big-game goaltender and workhorse.
