Powered By
The Pro Hockey Group
Note: Reports prior to Sept 2023 were originally graded out of ten, and also included additional categories that have been merged into the current categories.
This likely results in the overall ratings prior to 2023 being decreased in comparison to reports since Sept 2023.

For an `Apples to Apples` comparison between players, we recommend only comparing reports before, or after, Sept 2023.
Results will average out accordingly as more data is accumulated.

Entire game has been trending more consistent - resulting in more positive results and a confident look about his game.
Starting 'on time' / allowing his team to get their legs early in games without giving up an early goal against.
Using size to his advantage. Playing between his posts. Squaring up. Sitting tall in butterfly. Less and less 'wandering' outside the blue paint. Entire focus / tracking is trending back to where he has been in the past - when at his best.
#1 NHL Goalie - Veteran - Has battled some ups and downs - Contract pays $6M AAV - Expires at conclusion of 25/26 season - Holds full 'No Move Clause'

Projection: #1A
Trending: Under NHL Contract
Through his first 6GP his stats don't tell the entire story. His 2.68 GAA and .906 save % are mid-range for a #1 ... but he's being tasked with making more Grade A stops than most to start the season.
Big body. Butterfly. Good athlete for stature. Coming off a down season in (21/22) - he's already allowing .30 goals less per game on average.
He would like to have a few pucks back, but overall he's made more big stops than allowed poor goals against. Remains a #1A. Monitor focus at starts of periods / making early saves. Would like to see him read/react/ find pucks in traffic more consistently.
