Still, the guy's been absolutely amazing in the AHL. .931 SV%. I'm pretty sure he's ready.
I would've preferred Theodore or Hedberg, but I will gleefully take Dex.
ditto, this guy has put up incredible numbers the past 3 seasons in the AHL, and was a very good college goalie as well. Sure the lack of NHL experience is a downside, but as a 25 year old goalie prospect this guy is very appealing.
He is ready for an NHL 2nd goalie job. If Mason stumbles, I see a very eager, young, talented Dekanich ready to step in.
