|Covers a lot of the net, anticipates plays very well and has excellent reflexes and flexibility. This smooth, lanky butterfly goalie is ultra-competitive and can make big saves at key junctures. Could stand to add even more bulk to his 6-3 frame for greater stamina. Still needs to become stronger mentally so as to shake off bad goals in a better way, as he can lose his focus at times.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Excellent, workhorse goaltender.|
