Scouting Report
Had good size and excellent fundamentals for the goaltending position. Displayed an exemplary work ethic, especially at lower levels (where he dominated). Was a true battler in the crease area. Had a tendency to get beaten when forced to move quickly from side to side. Durability was an issue with him. Was also inconsistent at the National Hockey League level.
Long Range Potential: Depth goaltender.
