Scouting Report
Uses his huge frame to take up a lot of net. Moves well laterally and has a quick glove. Was a backup earlier in his National Hockey League career, and must still prove he can carry a very heavy workload. Injuries continue to be an issue, as he has missed chunks of time with an assortment of problems.
Long Range Potential: Proven, reliable goaltender (when healthy).
