Stolarz, among all of our prospects, had probably the most remarkable one-year turnaround. That's not to say he was bad before, but to see his play in net from his draft year to this past year was incredible. The jittery kid getting his first taste of professionalism looked like an absolutely machine the next year. Kids change and grow quickly within developmental systems all the time, but I hadn't seen anything quite as dramatic as Stolarz in a long time. Raw potential quickly turned into the belief that he was a lot more than just potential. For goaltenders that generally takes longer, so this is a pretty big deal. I really can't say enough about how much his game has changed. His decision to go through the London Knights as opposed to the University of Nebraska-Omaha was pretty crucial.
