Ty Young was a surprise revelation for his team this season after coming over from the AJHL, winning the team’s starting job for a little while, and helping them reach the postseason through some heroic performances. There is nothing especially notable about his game or style, but he goes about his business with impressive steadiness and consistency, and that reflects in his stat line. He came into a difficult environment and situation midway through his year, making the jump to a higher league, and handled it with remarkable poise and professionalism. He displays workmanlike composure even when he is being bombarded with a high number of shots. He is definitely above-average when it comes to following the play in front of him and seeing pucks through traffic. He keeps his form nice and tight so it’s hard for shooters to get pucks through him or over his shoulders. His rebound control is fairly clean and controlled. The main drawbacks on him right now are his quickness, movement, and reflexes. He isn’t especially fluid in how he moves around in his crease and he doesn’t get great extension with his limbs, so opposing teams can find a lot of net to shoot at when they move the puck around him. He needs to get quicker and more agile to help with second and third saves, or to adjust to blocked or redirected shots. Once he’s dropped into the butterfly he gets a little too stuck there. It would be nice to see him project out of his net quicker to cut down angles, since relying too much on size and positioning works well enough at this level but won’t be enough moving forward. In a draft class that is weaker for goalies, he will likely be worth taking on as a project.
