Dex is hurt, Jeremy Smith may need somebody else to play a game or two. Chet Pickard was dressed, but I don't know if he is up to the task. Engren may get a chance to play and show what he can do in the AHL regular season.
We've been discussing this in the Ads thread, but when asked about it last night...Lambert did not rule out Engren playing this season.
Engren is the real deal. He stood out as the best goalie two summer's ago at prospect camp, but admittedly struggled this past summer and at the start of this year in Finland. However, he finished the year with a .918 SV% and 2.84 GAA in 51 games and even more impressively posted a .940 SV% from November 16th onward.
Very agile goalie. Fluid skater. Always square to the shooter and teases you to beat him glove side before he snatches it away. Great glove hand. I think once he adjusts to the smaller rinks and the new angles and speed of the play that he'll shoot up the depth charts quickly.
