He has done very well this year for a kid playing against men on a pretty flawed Red Bull Salzburg roster. He played 59 games this year and put up GAA 2.36, SVS% 92,1 good for 6th in the league. Not bad for a 19 year old.
His role was pretty much defined as backing up Alex Auld (who was brought in to add some NHL flair after Marty Turco did not earn a new contract but failed miserably) and late addition Veteran Bernd Brückler (anybody still remember him?) but Gracnar took over in the second half of the season.
He just signed a 3 year contract extension and may be ready to be the full time starter as soon as next season if he opts to stay in the EBEL.
Gracnar is small but athletic. His puck handling is pretty raw but this can be said of most European goalies.
