Joonas Korpisalo

Aaron Vickers

A good sized goaltender who has had some very good technical training. He has nice net coverage because of his natural size and posture in the net. He has very quick legs and can kick out a pad like some flashy goaltenders or shoot out a glove hand to rob the opponent. He has good flexibility and smooth side-to-side mobility, but can give up some juicy rebounds at times. He stands with a very upright posture and takes away the upper portion of net well while also possessing the speed to get those low shots with his athletic legs. His compete level is very high and he never gives up on a play, instead he makes second and third saves when needed. He has had trouble tracking the puck in traffic at times this season, making him susceptible to quick screened shots. Consistency was a strength of Korpisalo’s this year as he dominated the Junior A under-20 circuit as well as multiple impressive international games. (May 2012)
