Holt

While uncovering what Holt is truly capable of is a bit of a mystery, having played so little hockey over the past two years, Holt very may well be the next in a long line of high-end goalies to come out of Everett. His size may work against him, but his high level of athleticism…

While uncovering what Holt is truly capable of is a bit of a mystery, having played so little hockey over the past two years, Holt very may well be the next in a long line of high-end goalies to come out of Everett. His size may work against him, but his high level of athleticism and technical side of the game allows him to play a game that is efficient and gives off the perception that he’s got the lion’s share of the net covered. He’s aggressive but calculated, showing a willingness to get out to the top of the paint and beyond to challenge shots and use powerful lower body pushes to move around  dynamically and in control. The problem with some smaller goalies is that they can open up as they move laterally, but he can move quite seamlessly and compact, keeping his five hole and glove hands in positions that don’t compromise net coverage When tasked to, though, he could show some impressive athleticism and reflexes to make plays on quick cross-ice passes or point-blank shots. He’s constantly looking to remain proactive to read play. Seems in touch with what’s going on by showing a knack to make calculated moves to remain square to shooters and peering around any hindrances to get the best sight lines available. Has to do some work on controlling rebounds, as he could be a bit more efficient at controlling pucks to his blocker or pads instead of simply flashily kicking pucks away without purpose. Despite some grenades coming off of him, his glove hand is strong, as is his ability to swallow pucks high and limit chances. He is good off the post but can sit too deep with pucks coming to the slot, giving up the occasional bad goal. Will be getting the torch passed to him from the highly regarded Dustin Wolf unless he falters mightily, which could make him a great value pick and quality developmental project.
