The Good: Price has tremendous agility and reflexes and those attributes serve as the foundation for his game. Not only is he able to read and react quickly, but he is also able to steer rebounds into the corners with relative ease. Playing a butterfly style, Price is excellent at taking away the lower portion of the net, and relies on his quick hands to cover the upper portion. Beyond his prodigious physical skills, Price’s strongest asset may be his mental make-up. The young goaltender is calm to the point of appearing aloof or dispassionate. But it is that ability to avoid the highs and lows of the position that allow him to remain focused on the game itself. He is technically strong and always plays in control., and has a huge frame and covers a ton of net. He rarely ever appears rattled in the cage, but can get angry on occasion. He reads the play and follows the puck exceptionally well, and can play the puck quite well, except behind his net. One of the leagues top goaltenders. He is a proven winner, winning a Calder Cup, AHL playoff MVP and World Junior championship all in the same year, 2007.
The Bad: He could stand to be more fiery at times, but that’s just not in his makeup. He occasionally makes mistakes behind the net, so its better for him to just leave it to his defenseman. He has yet to prove himself in the playoffs.
