G Stuart Skinner - Lethbridge Hurricanes, WHL (2017 Draft) ‎

6'4" 16 year-old goalie for the Lethbridge Hurricanes, isn't eligible until 2017 NHL Entry Draft. He was drafted 17th overall in 2013 WHL Bantam Draft (Hurricanes made a controversial trade to get him) but is now starting to show he can be a star. He is already getting comparisons to Tristan Jarry and even Carey Price.

Not to jump the gun as it’s not even half way through the 2014-15 season, but Battah doesn’t seem to be out of line at all regarding Skinner’s future. He’s on pace to outperform the rookie seasons of Comrie, the Edmonton Oil Kings’ Tristan Jarry and even former American and current Montreal Canadiens star Carey Price. Moreover, he’s on pace to do so with a less-talented team in front of him than those goalies had.
He has put up good numbers as a 16 year-old rookie on an absolutely abysmal team:
Stuart Skinner
8-11-3 3.56 GAA .908 SV% 1 SO

Other Lethbridge Goalie
1-12-3 4.48 GAA .881 SV% 0 SO


Obviously its early, but what do you guys think his potentially is? He is definitely some one to keep an eye on going forward.

I've watched him twice and he's been phenomenal both times.

He's very big with good reflexes. What he's doing at 16 on that terrible team is impressive.
