Athletic butterfly style keeper has shown great poise and mental strength in the crease…outstanding technique and angles play help him to dominate games even without prototypical size…awesome lateral mobility and reflexive save ability…goes down into his butterfly and pops back up quickly…footwork is excellent and he is able to pick up the puck effectively in traffic…makes himself bigger ad covers more net than his size would suggest…reads the play and is aggressive against lone offensive attackers. Obvious lack of size and bulk are areas that have some concerned…tendency to drop into butterfly early is a common concern for youngsters and he is not different…needs to work on his rebound control as some nights he looked solid and others it was an issue…he has been caught playing a little deep in his net…puck handling is not one of his immediate strengths.
