    Hi, I was just wondering if there was any highly thought of goaltender that hasn't been drafted yet. What I mean to say is, like any seventeen and under goalie that is showing some immense promise for the future.

    I am not a scout, and do not follow all leagues. Two I know of are Jordan Subban from the Belleville Bulls and Matt Murray who I got to watch this year in the Soo. Murray is a big goalie, needs to fill out, but has great reflexes and poise. His main weakness this year was lateral movement, he should be the goalie in the Soo for the next 2-4 years, and a good pick in next years draft.

    Per Jim Matheson from the Edmonton Journal, Tri-City Americans general manager Bob Tory has gone out on a limb and says Bill Comrie’s goalie son Eric “has potential to be as good or better than Carey Price. He’ll be a starting goaltender in the NHL.â€

    Steffen Soberg looks like a very good prospect, but any time you talk about "the next" it seems to imply greatness, and there are few sure things about goalie prospects.

    I don't know if you just meant undrafted goalies, but the Wings have a kid, Petr Mrazek, in the OHL who is looking pretty stellar so far. Smaller but really athletic and draws a lot of comparisons to the Dominator interestingly enough (he is Czech). If anybody has had a chance to see him play I would like to get your thoughts on him.

    The link below is an article posted on redwingscentral.com:

    Unless you are talking about up and comming D man, Jordan Subban should not be mentioned in this convo. He is a D-Man and based on scouting reports, he could very well be a solid up and coming D.

    You were probably referring to Malcom Subban who is the goalie for the Bulls, and from what I've heard he might be a back up at best.

    i've seen him play, and he seemed about average. Which in the OHL probably means your right about what he'll turn out to be.

    According to a lot of 95's, Ian Jenkins was going to be the next best thing that was until he got into an accident and his family took him off life support yesterday. It's a real shame. The US had a real special kid waiting in the rafters and it all goes down the drain. Hate to hear stories like that.

    It is really sad. No official word as of yet on his condition though. Hopefully the slim chance he has to pull through is what happens.

    I dont know how young guys you are looking for, but Finnish goaltender Samu Perhonen (eligible this year) should be a good one.

    Ville Husso is a '95 born highly touted finnish goaltender who plays for the HIFK B-Juniors, may got some SM-A starts next season. I think that he will be a star in the NHL someday.

    Currently the youngest player in the Swedish Elite League.
    He's going to be the number one ranked European Goalie next year. His style of play is much like Gustavssons. He is expected to have a higher potential though.

    It's telling that nobody has mentioned Dalton Izyk yet.

    I knew his last name was Subban, and I only got to see him once. I know he played U17 or U18, so I figure he probably had some skill. I know Matt Murray is a good one, that's about it for draft eligible goalies this year, or in years to come.

    I guess you mean François Tremblay of the Val D'Or Foreurs. He's already 6'2 and 194 lbs at 16. I hope he gets the starting job next season.
