Consistency at the AHL level has been elusive so far but he has all the skills to take hold of a starting job once he becomes comfortable.
Visentin split time with goaltender Chad Johnson during his first year in the AHL. While he looked decent his numbers were nothing special in 2012-13, finishing a hair above a .900 save percentage.
