Scouting Report
Assets: Owns a good glove hand. Has the size every National Hockey League club covets from the goaltending position. Handles the puck very well. Is very athletic in the crease area and plenty confident overall. Has enough stamina to play most games.
Flaws: Gets beat on his blocker side a little bit too much. Needs more work on his lateral mobility and general quickness in the crease area, since he can struggle with pucks at his feet. His rebound control is only average and could stand to improve.
Career Potential: Excellent workhorse goaltender.
