He played exclusively in the ECHL with affiliate Greenville Road Warriors in his rookie campaign putting up respectable numbers with a couple of visits north to Connecticut Whale on recall but no game minutes.
To start 2012/2013 the mammoth 6’8″ 220 lbs. goaltender was a natural fit for an AHL job and what do you know got the nod in net on opening night. He would eventually get yanked at the start of the third after letting up 5 goals on a 38 shot barrage.
The 22-year old big man in the crease has gotten off to a soft start in his sophomore season posting a 2-3 record, which isn’t horrible but his 4.94 GAA and .850 SV% could definitely use some work.
And work he will likely get as he was recently reassigned back to Greenville to fine-tune his shot-blocking confidence.
He’s got the size and the skills but still looks to be figuring out how to move that frame into position quicker to stop more shots.
He was originally a Montreal Canadiens‘ 4th round pick in the 2008 draft (#116 overall) but was never signed.
