Daws using mature approach to limited opportunity

Daws is an alert goaltender who relies heavily on his puck tracking, light feet and reflexes to make most of his saves. He never hesitates to grab any pucks floating near by before it causes any more damage, and he reads and reacts well accordingly to what he sees and anticipates in front of him. He can quickly slide laterally across the crease to make those saves where you think it’s an automatic tap-in. He moves freely in his crease and his movements are methodical and smooth, as he is surprisingly quick in the net. He likes to use the slide technique rather than the push when moving from one side to the other, from stand-up position to butterfly. However, despite those fluid lateral moves, he needs to be careful because on behind the net plays, he may tend to lose his balance and get beaten on wrap-around attempts. He displays great leg reflexes, not afraid to do the splits to keep the puck out of the net on what seems like impossible stops.  He flashes his glove on multiple occasions in each game, and has that Velcro effect, not allowing any big, juicy rebounds. Overall, he is a goaltender who won’t over commit on one side, doesn’t challenge too much, but doesn’t play too deep in his crease either. He has some areas to grow and doesn’t excel at everything but displays very-well rounded skills in all areas of his game to be further developed.
