Hurricanes select G Collin Olson #159 (USNTDP)

CSB: #21 NA Goalie

Position: G
Size: 6'4/197
Team: US U-18
Born: April 4th, 1994

38 Games: 19-11-1-1, 2.44GAA, .902 sv%

Goalie of the USNTDP, Ohio State commit

MNHockey Prospects:
Olson developed nicely after a rough start for the USDP U-17 squad last season. Olson is a big goaltender, which is a good, as the new trend in scouting goalies is that bigger is better. Olson uses his big frame to his advantage as he does a good job keeping square to the shooter and cutting off any angle his opponent might have. Does a good job of closing any gaps down low by using his extremely quick reflexes.

Despite playing sparingly at Apple Valley High School in 2009-10, Olson showed the composure of a seasoned veteran while playing for the USDP. Olson’s draft stock has risen drastically thanks to playing sensational in international play.
