A scouting report on Bobrovsky from Hockey's Future:

http://www.hockeysfuture.com/prospects/sergei_bobrovsky

Wasn't able to get the scouting report from Russian Prospects.com, but the one thing that all the scouting reports show is that he's kind of a hybrid stand up/butterfly goalie. He usually remains up right until the play comes in close, then he goes into the butterfly. He's also not an adept puck handler, so he'll usually leave the puck for his teammates to play. He's also not a wanderer and very seldom leaves his crease. When he does, it's usually to challenge shooters. His glove hand is above average and he moves well laterally. Perhaps the biggest issue though (and it seems to be a common trend amongst Flyer goalies) is that he gives up huge rebounds.

With that being said, a full season of working with Jeff Reese should help with giving up less rebounds. I really like this signing.
