The Good: Jacob Markstrom is the best goaltending prospect in the NHL. Markström is a tall goaltender that has the ability to look even bigger in net. He is a skilled goaltender with great mental strength as one of his major characteristics. He is cool, yet intensely competitive. Markstrom plays the butterfly style with a good glove and has fine positioning and agility in net. Although he struggled with rebound control and reactions to game speed in the early part of his first season in North America, Markstrom had been adjusting and improving in those areas before his injury. Markstrom has been up and down between the NHL and AHL due to injuries to Theodore and Clemmenson, but the plan was for him to play another year in the AHL to add more seasoning to his game, recover fully from his knee injury from the year before, and prepare for his upcoming role as the Panthers goaltender of the future.

The Bad: Although he struggled with rebound control and reactions to game speed in the early part of his first season in North America, Markstrom had been adjusting and improving in those areas before his injury. He must keep his emotions in check, since he can get a little rattled in pressure situations and lose his net.  He also needs to fill out his huge frame.
