Scouting Report
Owns a big frame, which he uses effectively to cover a lot of net. Has fast reflexes and a good glove hand, and he moves well in the crease. Displays the calm demeanor required to thrive between the pipes in the NHL. Has had off-ice issues, as well as injury troubles, so he is not as reliable as most upper-echelon starting goaltenders. Is not great at communicating with his defenders, or when handling the puck himself.
Long Range Potential: Quality goaltender, when healthy.
