Talent Analysis

Langhamer is athletic in the crease, possessing quick reflexes and good lateral movement. He has a quick glove and is comfortable with traffic in front of him and has a battler's attitude. He needs to work on his patience and positional play.


Langhamer will begin his professional career in 2015-16 following an overage season in the WHL. He will compete for a spot with Arizona's new AHL affiliate Springfield but may end up in the ECHL to start the season. Langhamer has been a workhorse at the junior level and has a high compete level. As with any young goalie it is a matter of maturing physically and putting the pieces together.
