The AMBHL North Goalie of the year. In terms of aggressive netminding, Scott Ratzlaff is the definition of an aggressive high presence goalie. Ratzlaff’s technical abilities are so smoothed and polished, he makes the stops effortlessly. A competitive butterfly style goalie who likes to play the puck when the opportunity arises and he showed massive improvement in that ability throughout the season. Very sharp with his reflexes. A very good skater at this age. Active and puck focused in his crease. Makes himself look big by challenging the puck carrier and attacking the shooter. Few errors in his game are his proneness to over commit to the puck, working on adjusting his depth in his crease, improving his tracking into his body, and improving his consistency.
