Saw him against Russia at the Ivan Hlinka Memorial Cup. Despite allowing six goals I was very impressed with his play and he stood out to me as the top goalie from the Breclav group so I thought I'd share my observations.
He has a very calm demeanor, big presence in the net. Looked very confident and unrattled throughout the game despite allowing three quick goals in the second period.
Technically very sound, very active hands, great glove, very solid butterfly, good rebound control and reads the play very well. Definitely could be more patient. Lot of times he just drops and relies on his strong b-fly.
He has Kari Lehtonen written all over him.
I'm not sure about his potential though. He still has room to grow technically but I would say he's already well polished. So I suppose he doesn't have the upside of a raw prospect such as Vasilevski. I don't know his work ethic and dedication which is obviously key for his development.
Would love to hear someone else's opinion on him, seems like a promising goaltender...
