Scouting Report

Strengths: 

Has a good-sized frame (6-2, 190 pounds) for the goaltending position, a positive attitude and a lot of perseverance. Owns an ideal demeanor for a backup netminder.

Weaknesses: 

Has too many holes in his game to be considered a regular puck-stopper at the National Hockey League level. Has never been able to carry over his minor-league success to the NHL.

Projection: 

Journeyman depth goaltender.
