Scouting Report
Reads the play very well. Can dominate games on occasion, mainly because he never quits on a play--even when he is down and out. Possesses a positive demeanor and shakes off bad performances quite well. Is athletic. Can be guilty of flopping around in the crease area at times, leading to bad habits--which also leads to bad stretches and puck-stopping slumps. Could stand to improve in the consistency department, in general.
Long Range Potential: Solid, veteran goaltender in decline.
