Talent Analysis

Rollheiser is a goaltender with a large frame capable of getting in front of pucks. His size aids in his ability to block pucks through traffic situations. He’s seen limited action so far in the NCAA which hasn’t aided in his development.

Future

Rollheiser will return for his final year at Boston University.
Projection: Depth goaltender.

They are added to a list of names such as Korbinian Holzer, Jesse Blacker, Stuart Percy, and Petter Granberg that are in the fold currently. Each player offers a different dynamic that should complement the team’s defensive core if they continue to progress in their development.
