In what is considered a strong NHL Draft class, the position of goaltender is perhaps the one in this age group that is lacking high-end depth. The one exception to that rule would be Halifax Mooseheads goaltender, Zachary Fucale.

Fucale recently wrapped up a season in which he and his Mooseheads teammates won the QMJHL crown, then proceeded to win the Memorial Cup to put the exclamation point on their ranking as the CHL's top club.

As far as his own play was concerned, Fucale lived up to his preseason billing as the top goaltender available for the 2013 NHL Draft, going pole-to-pole as the top-rated netminder in this draft class. He was named the QMJHL's First Team All-Star goaltender, and also received that honor at the Memorial Cup Tournament.

Fucale met with the media at the 2013 NHL Combine, a portion of which is captured in this Hockey's Future video.
