Athletic, yes! .... everything else needs work. Falls to his butterfly WAY to often instead of reading it first. Doesn't have

He's only been between the pipes for 6 years now.
While the butterfly is a standard first reaction for most golatenders, Malcom's notion to go into a tight blocking butterfly instead of a little looser, half butterfly is what is keeping him from really being able to react to alot of the shots.
Could be nerves, training, both.
