Just shiity luck.
Let's hope it's minor and he's back in soon. I really see this kid as the eventual backup for Hart. He's our Lehner.
Right now he's behind Ustimenko and Fedotov, and if Sandstrom gets healthy, he's two years ahead in his development.
Ersson is more like Ross, a long shot who is 2-3 years away.
I dont think he is behind Ustimenko in terms of where he is right now.
Better technically by some way, was an SHL starter last year on a team with a joke of a D (played far, far better than stats), after having the best season in Allsvenskan history for ANY goalie, let alone a teenager.
And will be the starter again this year.
Ustimenko has the advantage of being in NA, and playing in the AHL (acclimation to NA hockey, learning English, etc), but if there's no AHL season, Ersson will have the edge with a second SHL season. And Ersson is 9 months younger.
The interesting one is Tomek, 4th in the Czech league in S%, not sure how that translates, but still an good sign from a player I think we had all written off.
I'm still betting on Fedotov, because "bigger is better" and you don't get much bigger than 6'8.
More seriously, 10th in S% as a rookie in the KHL is pretty impressive.
#is he huuge?
If not, i dont see any chance he will be in our lineup under AV
Good for him. Hope he pans out.
Being Swedish, he likely speaks better English than you.
Oh come on
If you'd just bring back the Austrian-Hungry Empire, we wouldn't have to figure out which new country and which new league all the time.
Looks like he's taking that step up this season, like Fedotov did last season.
He was good last year.
He just had a comedy show in front of him. And the year before he had the best season in Allsvenskan history.
Eriksson was his back-up last year... and put up .880.
Eriksson's prior SHL seasons: .916, .913, .913, .931, .935, .909... with a .919 KHL season thrown in and 10 games for Sweden's NT.
Ersson was my favorite goalie from 18 draft. If he keeps developing, Flyers will have stellar goaltending for the entire decade. Jealous to have to face your youngsters!
How many 1 year deals will Elliott be signed to before we can replace him with one of our other goalie prospects?
One has to take the Lehigh net from Lyon first...
Both goals today were deflections in close.
Though the second one maybe could have had... just had a gap to post it crept through.
Still looks like he'll need a couple years of SHL seasoning, which is not a problem, I mean Lyon is the AHL goalie this year, Ustimenko will also be on the AHL team, Sandstrom if healthy should be on the Phantoms. Next year Elliott will be gone and one of the kids promoted.
Of course in two years Fedotov takes the job and everyone else gets traded.
