    Again a bit of juice from BB

    According to Adam Herman, Greg Balloch notes that Wall dominated the Ontario Junior Hockey league, and the numbers appear to back it up. He is a big goaltender who plays deep in his net, which is the style that Rangers' goaltending coach helped bring to the forefront. He'll know exactly what to do with him.

    Wall is committed to Umass-Amherst of Hockey East, and the Rangers will be content letting him marinate there for four years.

    Greag Balloch, who was cited by Herman, is head of @SurreyEagles goaltending development. as far as his goaltending knowledge goes.
    For all that, however Balloch did not include Wall in his list of top 10 goaltenders available in the draft.

    But goaltending selections seem like as much science as alchemy, so ... seems like a good pickup until it ain't. and like So Nashty says, the name is right.

    FYI, the Hockey DB link isn't him.

    Had a fantastic year. He's big, too. I'd put him ahead of Huska.

    Wall just crushed Junior 'B' before walking in and dominating Hockey East as an 18 year old. Pretty genius pick on a guy coming out of a lower league.

    Any chance he makes the World junior roster next year?

    I think he's still eligible, but that would require Hockey Canada making a good decision so I doubt he even gets an invite. After the McNiven snub this year I just assume they'll take the two goalies from the two best teams in the CHL.

    I liked Wall because he comes from the Junior B trenches in Southern Ontario.

    Not looking good though a GAA of 5(!) and a save .pct of .820 through 5 starts for UMass-Lowell in a case where the other goalie is posting Shesterkin #'s and has now assumed a firm grasp on the starters role.

    All our goalie prospects sans Shesterkin have now flamed out after really promising prior years.
