Scouting Report
Assets: Has the requisite projectable frame that most NHL scouts now look for from the goaltending position, plus the 'cool-as-a-cucumber' demeanor that is preferred for the crease area. Also displays excellent agility and athleticism. His glove hand also sticks out as a major strength.
Flaws: Needs to prove he can avoid surrendering a critical 'bad goal' at the most inopportune moments, which should come with more experience in the professional ranks. Also needs to fill out his upper body (and 6-3 frame, in general) to maximize his starting goaltender potential.
Career Potential: Talented, athletic goaltender with upside.
