Hellberg from what I heard is a Rinne-clone. Swede, 6-6, ~200lbs.
The quote I saw on him was this: ‘ is a tall, agile young netminder who plays a butterfly style and covers the lower net extremely well. He appears much smaller than he is when challenging shooters, and displays impressive leg drive and speed. While his glove hand is reliable, he will need to cover more of the net to advance as a professional.’ He split time with Smith in Milwaukee and basically became a workhorse that they couldn’t get out from between the pipes. Sub-2 GAA in the AHL playoffs (1.69 GAA and .944 SV%).
My suspicion is that Magnus would never be called up to ride pine a lot and will get the chance to be the man. We’ll see 50-50 playing time for both him and Hutton and then see if Magnus emerges.
If he plays well, anyone think we might have a $7M dollar problem in our season ticket package or just trade him off for a second like we did with Anders?
