Yann Danis

Posted: February 23, 2012 by Steven Ellis in Edmonton Oilers

The Good: Danis, an experienced AHL veteran, is a cool customer under pressure. He plays a steady, mature game between the pipes. Usually lets the puck hit him and is rarely out of position. Danis has good lateral movement and takes up a lot of space in net. He is usually tough to beat down low and has very quick reflexes. His biggest asset is his work ethic, as he was a workhorse in net for lower level teams. danis, along with David Lenevu, provide a very reliable goaltending duo, while prospect Olivier Roy develops in the ECHL.  He has the ability to be an NHL backup goaltender.

The Bad: There isn’t anything great about his play style. Danis is a little undersized and doesn’t have great lateral mobility. He needs to show he can consistently string together quality starts at the big-league level. Nothing more than a depth goalie.
