A large goalie with a massive presence in the net, Sogaard doesn’t only rely on his size or frame to make a save. He is surprisingly quick with his feet and moves well in his net. He showcases agility in how he positions himself and an ability to quickly get into his butterfly and shuffle around to reposition himself to stay square. He has a massive lower half spread and his upper body covers a huge portion of the upper net and he is also highly athletic. He is very calm and controlled when moving laterally and never overcommits. One of his weaknesses is the ability to track pucks through screens and traffic and he needs to work on picking up the shot location. He is hesitant to play the puck and seemingly doesn’t like to get involved in play outside of his crease. He suffocates pucks consistently to his mid frame and redirects well low and to his blocker side, making life easy for himself to recover to get in front of second attempts. He has a dangerously effective glove hand and tracks clean pucks well to avoid fumbling the rebounds. When tasked with low and hard shots, he uses his stick as a strong tool to control pucks. He limits a lot of second opportunities and is surprisingly acrobatic, even if he does appear lanky and awkward at times.
