Scouting Report
Owns a projectable, NHL frame (6-2). Plays the goaltending position with supreme confidence. Has the ability to dominate most lower levels (he is a talented puck-stopper). Is extremely raw and must become a more consistent performer in the crease area. Needs to learn professional shooters' tendencies in order to maximize output in the NHL.
Long Range Potential: Raw, talented but inconsistent goaltender with upside.
