Scouting Report
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. 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.
Long Range Potential: Excellent, veteran workhorse goaltender.
