Scouting Report

Assets:
Massive, he fills up most of the net when in his butterfly. Changes shooters' tendencies with his raw size and lets the puck hit him. Athletic and pretty mobile, he also shows good reflexes and recovery skills.
Flaws:
Sometimes, he drops to the ice too quickly or over-commits, and is stuck scrambling to make the save or get back into position. Will yield the occasional soft goal. Is still adjusting to North American shooters.
Career Potential:
Talented, yet inconsistent goaltender with some upside.
