Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "He looked like he had anvils on his shoulders after the first third of the year. I like the fact that he fought through it, but in terms of giving him a chance, it was one of the worst places he could be. More to him than was shown." (Hockey News Draft Preview)

• "Very calm and poised goaltender with long limbs and good reflexes. Shuts down angles extremely well, and holds his ground well against the rush. Tough to beat without a deflection. Footwork could be a little better." (Mark Sauer, ISS Scout)

• "Big net presence. Excellent positional and angle play. Sets square and plays to the top of the paint. Traditional butterfly style. Very calm and relaxed demeanor. Uses his glove well. Excellent in his post-to-post play. ... Great rebound control. Excellent NHL potential." (NHL Central Scouting Report)

• "Scott is a really good-looking goaltender. I want to be higher on him because of his positional play and the fact that he was even keel and calm in some tough outings. But, he didn’t stop enough pucks or keep his team in enough game to be considered one of my top goalies." (Cass Bruni, Scout, HockeyProspect.com Black Book)

• "Confidence took a beating playing on a basement-dweller, but it's rare for someone so large to move so fast. Has the size to take away top portion of net on knees, shufflign effectively on pads across-crease when down." (Red Line Report)
