He finished the WHL regular season with a record of 33-14-5 and 5 SO, and was 4th in GAA and 2nd in Save % on a low scoring Rebels team. Another impressive stat, Bartosak set a new WHL record for shootout wins in a season, going 8-0 while making 26 saves on 28 attempts. I know stats don't tell the whole story, but I've been following him for a while and he keeps his team in the game (and steals some) on many nights. He's not the most mobile goaltender but has very decent size and is good down low. He could be had much later in the draft and would add some much needed depth to the Habs goaltending prospect pool. Would be a very good option, unless something better presents itself.
He's grown on me since last season. Definitely on my radar. Him and Jarry.
