HIGHLIGHTS
1-time World Championship Gold Medal 1
1-time EBEL Champion 1

A tall and strong goalie who covers the net very well. Good posture, technique and movement. Saves initial attempts well, but sometimes struggles to recover after a save and is therefore vulnerable to rebounds. Excellent work ethic. (Matias Strozyk)
