Gerasimyuk is an impressively polished and well-balanced goaltender for someone his age. His skating ability is at a high level and he is extremely agile moving laterally and when making adjustments, showing explosiveness off of his push leg and the edge work to stay controlled when he’s on his feet. His coverage of the bottom portion of the net is a strong suit and his fast twitch movements allow him to adjust quickly and get up and down or push side to side and square up the shooter. He is very engaged in the play but sometimes it’s almost subtraction by addition. He has strong technical foundation and electric gamesmanship that never keeps him out of the play but keeping his style more sound would almost benefit him to find consistency with net coverage and where he’s putting rebounds. He resets his positioning in the crease when pucks go high by elevating his shoulders high and then once he’s seeing over the forwards he gets into a deep crouch and has his gloves a ways out in front of his torso ready to attack the puck. He has very good control of his hands and is quick to track pucks he can see but he tends to tip his glove at times and drops it to a point that allows generous space in the upper part of the net. His post play could use a bit of work as he’s really cerebral but can tend to relax to cheat for a weak-side option. He likes to play the puck to help out his defense and doesn’t seem to take unnecessary risks. His focus and proactivity to try and read the play is impressive and he seems to keep fighting even when giving up goals. His quickness and coverage is elite with the ability to stand on his head and be engaged on high-danger sequences. The inconsistencies right now are that he does have lapses in his game where he can give up poor goals and rebounds by playing more complex than he needs to if he were to just get on his angle and be less fidgety. There are lots of areas to work on but also lots of tools to work with. The time for adjustment will come if he wants to be a consistent NHL roster player.
