The Good: Scrivens has good size at 6’2 and he’s an aggressive goalie who likes to challenge shooters – but also keeps his game simple. He has a calm demeanour in net which breeds consistency in his game. His frame, combined with his ability to move quickly between the pipes allows him to get in front of the puck quickly. He’s shown success at the NCAA level and is now translating that success into his early pro career. Like most NCAA players, he’ll need to develop consistency over a longer season and not fizzle out. Scrivens solidified himself as the starting goalie in the Marlies organization, and unless goaltending help is found, Scrivens may have a good chance to make the Leafs next season. Despite finishing his short NHL stint with a losing record, Scrivens did impress and could make a solid career in the NHL.
The Bad: “Scriver” is not the quickest netminder in the crease area. He needs to continue making adjustments to pro shooters’ tendencies in order to maximize potential. Goaltending help is expected with the big club, so more time in the A is expected.
