Scouting Report
Assets: Is competitive and has plenty of confidence in his ability. Handles the puck extremely well and can act as a third defender in the transition game. Is at his best when his positioning is sound.
Flaws: Lacks the consistency to maximize his puck-stopping ability. Must curb his penchant for letting in bad goals at the most inopportune times. Also, he could stand to gain greater stamina for the NHL.
Career Potential: Decent backup goaltender.
