Wishart is an athletic goalie who favours a hybrid style. He skates well and goes post to post with speed and accuracy. His ability to leave the crease and play the puck was particularly noticeable. There’s a real comfort he has outside the blue paint and that adds an interesting element to his game. Rebound control seemed to affect him all game. Wishart couldn’t keep pucks in front of him and shots just never really stuck to him. Several times his opponents were able to keep plays alive around the crease after he wasn’t able to gather in loose pucks. Even with this deficiency it was his pad seal along the ice that concerned me most. His up-down movement was a bit slower than it could have been and this led to gaps along the ice and vulnerabilities on goalmouth scrambles. Most shots from the outside were turned away with relative ease although one did squeak in under his arm but this didn’t concern me much. I did like his pre-shot preparation and puck-tracking. His posture was athletic, and he offers a big target for shooters to beat. Wishart, committed to play NCAA for Colgate, has a long development track in front of him. Although this wasn’t the performance he would have liked, don’t count Wishart out for the 2024 draft. As a second-year draft eligible, he will have a long body of work for teams to consider and at this point, he would certainly be in the conversation.
