Add this guy....

Jeff Deslauriers, to the list of young goalies I'm keeping an eye on as their careers progress.

I watched him calmly and flexibly spank the Rangers the other night and have been intrigued ever since. He's a big guy at 6'4" and has kind of a unique style. You know goalies have to be flexible, but this dude is constantly flopping into the splits. He's beyond flexible. He's Stretch Armstrong.

The Oil seem to have something in this kid. Here's a THN article about him. I mean, you never really know when guys bust out of seemingly nowhere and blow everyone away on a national level. But goalies don't seem to have the "beginner's luck" that skaters seem to have. In the NHL, if you aren't the real deal (and sometimes even if you are), they're gonna gitcha.

I'm a big fan of him. The Oilers really need the goaltending help.
