Quotes from Major Draft Guides

• "A big goaltender that covers a lot of space in his net. He's very athletic, never quits on any pucks, and can make some highlight-reel saves. He will need to learn to stay calmer in his crease, as sometimes he can be out of control in his movements and can get distracted easily by opponents. ... He's one of the best puckhandlers at (17-year-old) age group, even in midget he was making better passes than some of his defensemen." (HockeyProspect.com Black Book)
