The Good: Clemm has been a reliable backup goaltender everywhere he has played during his career so far.  He has great size for the goaltending position (6’2, 101 lbs),  and lets the puck hit him. He can fill in as a starting netminder from time to time, making a name for himself while taking over for injured Martin Brodeur a few seasons back. Most scouts say he is emotionally mature, and that his ability to not fight the puck has been big for him during his career. Like most New Jersey goaltending products, Clemmensen is a stand-up goaltender.

The Bad: His rebound control isn’t the greatest and his lateral mobility is average. He spent a big percentage of his career as a backup to Brodeur, playing less than 10 games a year. He has been trade bait for the Panthers, with Jose Theodore and Jacob Markstrom playing so well.  Because of limited playing time, Clemmensen doesn’t have No. 1 goaltender ability, mainly because of a lack of consistency. His playing style is easier to score on than the traditional butterfly style.
