Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Has a huge frame, which helps him cover up most of the net. Doesn't usually hurt himself, or his team, by letting in soft goals.

Weaknesses: 

Is still somewhat raw and needs to improve his coordination and flexibility. Doesn't own enough puck-stopping ability to be considered a future starter.
