haha, I wrote that original prospect profile back when Delmas was backing up Jonathan Bernier in Lewiston and both of them were playing extremely well.

Things have changed since then. In Quebec and Halifax, the defensemen playing in front of him weren't as focused on clearing away rebounds and that exposed Delmas.

Here's what I submitted during his last year in junior:
Rebounds continue to be a concern, mainly on low shots. When he's moving, holes open up downlow. When he's set, he's got the size to cover the bottom half of the net well. Up high, he's got a good glove. A little scary playing the puck. Aggressive in the net, he comes out to challenge the shooter. When he's on his game, he tracks the puck well and puts himself in great position to make the 2nd and 3rd save, which considering his rebound tendency and his average speed in net, is a necessity.
