Scouting Report
Has the reflexes, quickness and lateral movement needed to be a starting NHL goaltender. Also boasts a good glove hand. Still needs to get stronger. Has to improve at tracking pucks because many of the shots that get past him are from distance. Is still learning the tendencies of shooters and how to acclimate himself to the smaller rinks in North America.
Long Range Potential: Talented goaltender with a little upside.
