The Good: Zatkoff is a goaltender with size that is extremely poised, confident and mature. What sets Zatkoff apart from many other big goaltenders is his tremendous athleticism. He possesses great reflexes and is good in his lateral movements. Zatkoff is also a fierce competitor and does an excellent job of staying square to shooters. While Zatkoff does a good job of steering pucks away from the crease, his puck handling, particularly in controlling rebounds, is an area that has improved over the years. 

The Bad: He has never had the greatest lateral quickness from side to side. Zatkoff likely deserves at least a cup of coffee, but he’s never really screamed out as a great goaltending prospect. Despite outplaying Martin Jones in Manchester of the AHL in 2011-2012, he hasn’t even gotten a sniff of NHL action, due to the play of Jonathan Quick and Jonathan Bernier. If Bernier, gets traded, expect Zatkoff to get the call up.
