Braden Holtby quietly achieved a milestone over the weekend. In Sunday’s shootout win over the New York Islanders, Holtby faced his 3000th shot. That’s a big deal. Young goalies are really hard to forecast. Half of the ones that play over ten games wash out before they hit 3000. When they finally get enough reps, we should bask in the increasing clarity.
|.917||Holtby’s career save percentage|
|3023||Number of shots faced in career|
|45.5||Percentage of career shots faced under Adam Oates|
He’s looking pretty good, and I think he can get better.
