Jeff Frazee

Posted: March 4, 2012 by Steven Ellis in New Jersey Devils

The Good: Frazee has average, but good enough size for the position. He is an athletic goaltender who covers a lot of ground due to his outstanding flexibility. While his development has stalled somewhat due to an inability to stay healthy and get into a rhythm of playing regularly, his game reading skills, calmness under siege and puck handling skills have all shown improvement since turning pro after his junior season at the University of Minnesota. “Freezy” has excellent concentration and is capable of playing a steady game in goal. He also boasts good team skills and is relatively low-maintenance.

The Bad: At one time, Frazee was the only goaltending prospect in the system and was thought to be the number one goaltender of the future. That is up in the air now as the team has added goaltenders to the prospect pipeline and also to the fact he has struggled to stay healthy after a fantastic rookie AHL season in 2008-09.The biggest knock against Frazee right now is consistency, which ties hand in hand with him being prone to injury.
