With his size and frame, Tyler Muszelik presents a large obstruction for would-be goal-scorers to face. He employs a really good butterfly style characterized by great lateral movement, quick slides, and great balance, in addition to the ability to throw out his legs on low shots. He has strong legs that keep his weight centered and, when he goes from post-to-post, he has incredible control and adherence to boundaries. His movements are quick. He can re-adjust to last-second moves by an attacker or directional changes that a puck might take on its route to the net. His legs can flair out quickly and his hands are just as fast. His glove and blocker projection are well out in front and inline with the shot trajectory, too. His pre-shot stance is tall and he can look past traffic and maintain sightlines on the puck. He keeps his hands high and torso upright and tall when he does go down into the butterfly. His level of engagement increases as the play travels from low-to-high-danger locations and he challenges and prepares accordingly. He generally is able to direct rebounds to non-dangerous areas. He has a good amount of patience but is susceptible to moving a bit early and tipping off his save selection to the shooter. He shows good patience when facing a shot in most cases, but can move a little bit early — particularly to the blocker side — opening room towards the glove. Particularly vulnerable to attacks off the wing, he will often find himself square to the shooter but off his angle and giving up some of the net. Not unlike most of his peers, he has some of the pieces figured out but still has work to do going forward. Right now, he looks like a goaltender who can add depth and potentially fill a back-up role.
