A year ago, he was considered as a very good goalie prospect by German standards. I thought he could follow in the footsteps of guys like Grubauer or Niederberger. This last season however was not as good as many expected. There are some younger goalies who may have passed him by. His play was not really bad, but inconsistent and he didn't really seem to improve much compared to the previous season.
I'd say he has the talent, but he has a lot of work to do. Maybe a change of scenery will do him some good.
Could he challange for a number 1 spot in Shawinigan? Yes I think so. Would I bet on it? No.
