2013 NHL Combine: Juuse Saros

Saros has moved up the ranks with HPK rather rapidly and started in goal as a 16 year old in the U20 league posting very good numbers last season. He returned to this league and showed his talents internationally as well. Juuse will need to overcome his size. It’s what’s made us most cautious about him as 5’10” is a tough height to succeed at the NHL level as a goaltender. However, Juuse seems to be defying the odds at this point of his development. Hands down his best attribute is his leg movement. It looks like someone hit the turbo button every time he drops into the butterfly. What’s more impressive is how quickly he gets up.
