Kotvan is arguably the best draft-eligible goalie prospect in the Slovak Junior League for 2007.
2006-07: Kotvan had three starts in the Slovak Senior League playoffs,including one start against HC Kosice in which he stopped 52 shoots, giving him a lot of self confidence going into next season. Surprisingly, in the U-18 WJC, he was only the back-up goaltender for Team Slovakia.
Kotvan is fairly quick and moves well, but sometimes is not sure when to play the puck out of his crease.
He could develop into a Jaroslav Halak type player, but he must work harder to get there. He has the potential to be an NHL backup goaltender.
