"To describe Owuya as a goaltender is not very easy. A butterfly goalie with a technique that is not very developed nor pretty, but he has good attitude, self confidence and stops the pucks, which it all is about in the end. He has a lot of advantage being of large size (6’2) and is pretty good at moving side-to-side. Has problems with high shots. Agility could still be better."
Last year he was hot, .929 Sv% and 1.94 GAA.
This year he's had a pair of bad games and hasn't had a chance to get going.
But I don't know if Owuya has good enough positioning or glove to make it to the NHL.
