Scouting Report
Assets:
Is extremely big for the goaltending position and covers a lot of net when in the crease, thanks to uncanny flexibility and lightning-fast reflexes. Never quits on a play and can be spectacular when he has to be. Works hard at constantly improving his game.
Flaws:
Can wear down a little bit if overworked, and occasionally surrender an uncharacteristically bad goal under those circumstances, so he needs to be rested a little more from time to time at the National Hockey League level to save his best for the playoffs.
Career Potential:
Outstanding, veteran workhorse goaltender.
