|Tampa Bay Lightning|
|Written by Jason Banks|
November 2012 – The 24 year old monster, has earned his first shot to become an NHL starter with the Tampa Bay Lightning, from the limited viewings I’ve had, he has very few flaws in his game. He will need to prove his ability to start 40 or more games in a North American season and that he can give a consistent effort every night. To this point he has shown he deserves the opportunity with a career save percentage of .914 in 38 games. When the NHL resumes he will be in a ‘1A-1B’ situation with Matt Garon, and Dustin Tokarski will be pushing hard from behind. Currently in the lockout he is playing in Finland where he signed a contract with Ilves, two weeks ago.
Worth a pick up as a second of third goalie on a fantasy squad, has a bright future, but it is currently dependent on how he performs as a starter in his upcoming opportunity.
