E-Mac's 2011 NHL Entry Draft Top 120: Tadeas Galansky #96

By Eldon MacDonald

96. Tadeas Galansky - “Mr. Goalie” - G – Czech Republic

Vitals: Size - 6’3”, 189 lb.; Shoots right; Born 29-Dec-92 Brno, CZE
Team: Saginaw, OHL
2010-11 Stats: 17-1-2.89-.910 + OHL playoffs - 1-0-4.94-.875
96 - E-Mac's 2011 NHL Entry Draft Top 120
169 - Christopher Ralph's Top 210
241 - NHL Central Scouting's Final Rankings (15th North American goalie)
Draft result:

And if you thought that you hadn’t seen enough of Matej Machovsky to spend a draft choice on him, it gets even worse with Tadeas Galansky. Not only was he a back-up but he missed most of the first half of the season due an off-ice, pre-season training injury. However, when he played he was one of the better draft eligible goalies this year sporting a .910 save percentage.

What scouts really like about him are his size, his overall agility, his coachability, his aggressiveness and the fact that he is really good “down low”. It is surprising how many people are really high on this guy even though he barely played. The goalie guru, Jerry Shields, has him as the 4th best overall goalie prospect in this draft (even ahead of John Gibson) at his blog spot - high praise indeed.
