|Brings good size to the pro crease and uses it well, challenging shooters and standing tall in the net. Can play a hybrid style that maximizes his size. When in his butterfly, he covers a lot of territory with his long legs. Is also solid at rebound control and takes the initiative as a puck-handler. Is not all that fluid or fast when he goes down to the ice, and he loses his balance a little too often. Gets caught out of position when scrambling and struggles to recover quickly. Needs to take fewer risks overall and tighten up his game in order to maximize his National Hockey League output.|
|Long Range Potential:|
|Solid goaltender with some upside.|
