Scouting Report

Scouting Comments: 

"He was one of the top-3 goalies on our list. We had him ranked very high. He's a player that our goalie coach Dave Alexander from Syracuse went to work with him a couple weeks ago at Hockey Canada's goalie camp, he's one of the goalies invited to Canada's World Junior Team - one of four goalkeepers. Had a tremendous season in Kamloops, gave them a chance to win every night and Dave was very complimentary coming out of the goalie camp about Ingram, and confirmed a lot of things that we've seen in him." -- Lightning Director of Amateur Scouting Al Murray

"Connor Ingram is a second-time draft eligible goalie who continues to impress with his performances for Kamloops. Ingram was one of the key reasons Kamloops qualified for the playoffs and also had a strong showing there. Ingram isn’t the biggest or most athletic goalie, but is one of those goalies who simply gets the job done. Ingram is strong down-low and plays a competitive game, he plays with confidence and seems to have the ability to get his body on the puck, even if in unorthodox ways. Him saving Kamloops defense’s bacon was a common occurrence. Ingram also excels under a heavy workload and shows no signs of wear against high volume of shots. Ingram’s size is just OK for a modern goalie, and he does show more weakness upstairs. While Ingram might not be the most technically or athletically proficient goalie prospect, we have liked his performance this year and he has built up a reputation of someone who can be relied upon in difficult situations and continue to perform at a high level. It would be fair to say that the mental part of goaltending might be Ingram’s biggest strength." -- HockeyProspect.com's Black Book
