Scouting Report
Assets: Owns a very projectable frame (6-4) for the goaltending position at the highest level, plus the confidence and icy-cool demeanor needed to excel. Also boasts great athleticism and big-game stopping ability in the clutch.
Flaws: Needs to bulk up a bit so as to maximize his ability to play a lot of games at the highest level (and thrive while doing so). Needs to learn shooters' tendencies a little better. Injuries might be a concern here.
Career Potential: Excellent, clutch goaltender with good upside.
