Scouting Report
The Latvian is a late bloomer who is growing into an NHL starter capable of starting 55-65 games in a season, after several successful seasons in Switzerland. He is a very athletic goalkeeper who never gives up on a play and continues to adapt to the smaller ice surfaces in North America (and the tendencies of NHL shooters). He is an emotional player, and that sometimes gets him in trouble, but is becoming the kind of netminder teams can build around.
Long Range Potential: Quality, foundational goaltender.
