Especially transition from Europe to North-America can be very tricky for goalies. For example, last season's FEL goalie of the year Riku Helenius has .880 SVS% in 12 games in the AHL this year. Another very solid Finnish goalie prospect and a former Wild pick Niko Hovinen has played 15 games with .889 SVS% in the ECHL, after being one of the best goalies in FEL last season. Tbh I'm surprised so many have been saying Gustafsson, I'd still go with Hackett.
