Bednar is an active goaltender who can push side-to-side effortlessly (but still must work on his explosiveness) while managing to pin his shoulders on the cross bar not to get bypassed upstairs. Plays with a ‘’follow through’’ style where he moves his body towards the puck when making a save in butterfly position. Still, his butterfly style may at the same time be a strength and one of his main weakness. He needs to work to have a little bit more dimension in his game, reading releases and not going down on every single shot. Big in size, he covers a lot of net for opposing shooters. His size alone is intimidating and he plays a poised mental game. He likes to come out of his net and challenge opponents on shots, but he must be careful with creative shooters and on rebounds.  He may not be the fastest moving goalie in the draft, but he makes up for it with this positioning and understanding of the game. He is skilled at playing the puck, choosing carefully when to leave the crease, and when he does, his passes to teammates are usually on tape. He catches the puck extremely well and never hesitates to rotate his mitt to adjust to the angle of the puck. Uses his blocker well, tracking the puck and using it effectively to clear rebounds away. Overall, a solid prospect, though he could work on his energy level as the game progresses.
