Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "He's not going to get any smaller, but he is going to get stronger, and when he gets stronger, he's going to be more athletic. You're looking at a two-to-three year period where he can even get the strength to just address his other technical things." (Anonymous Scout, Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "A big-bodied goaltender. Good quickness for his size, moves well-side to side, always ready for the play, good angles, uses his stick smartly. Does not move the puck well, and he can look nervous out of the net. Needs to bulk up. He will be a quality starter at the college level, and will be a top goalie in this year's draft." (Tyler Sian, ISS Scout)

• "He trusts his hockey sense and uses size well, doesn’t overcomplicate anything. He’s on his knees a lot, and his skating needs to get better. But he’s very calm and a smart kid. He has that Boston arrogance to him." (Anonymous Scout, Recrutes.ca)

• "He’s 6’6” and he moves well. ... He’s a really smart goalie. That’s a pretty good base package to build off. He's not just a big blocker ... He’s the real deal." (Anonymous NHL Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Plays a lot on his knees, spreading out long legs to take away the bottom half, but is tall enough to still cover the top corners. Has a very sharp glove hand. Alert and away of what's going on around his crease." (Red Line Report)
