Scouting Report
Assets: Is extremely big for a goaltender and covers a lot of net, thanks to uncanny flexibility and lightning-fast reflexes. Never quits on a play and can be spectacular in goal when he has to be.
Flaws: Can wear down a little bit if overworked, and occasionally surrenders bad goals, so he needs to be a little more consistent. To that end, he needs to save his best for the playoffs.
Career Potential: Excellent, veteran workhorse goaltender.
