Scouting Report

Big, athletic goaltender with poise. Covers crease with an economy of motion and uses his size well. Excellent at reading plays to put himself in strong position to handle initial shot, and recovers well to handle second shots.


“He had everything we’re looking for in a goaltender. He has the size, the athleticism, and the compete level.” – Joe McDonnell, Stars director of amateur scouting
