NHL Central Scouting’s Al Jensen

“Number one he is very confident. He is very strong in his crease and he isn’t predictable. His net coverage is very good and he reads the play well. I think he presents himself very well in the net and he has very good goalie instincts. He is very consistent which is a big positive for him. He is able to put any bad goals behind him; he doesn’t let anything bother him yet he is very competitive.  The first time I saw Pickard, I saw Olaf Kolzig -- I saw him big time in there.”

 

Tri-City head coach Don Nauchbaur

"Chet has done a really good job of being Chet Pickard . . . he's a much calmer goalie than he was say, a year and a half ago. He doesn't waste a lot of movement and he's learned to use his size and I think he emulates a lot of what Carey (Price) did in net.”
