The rundown on goalie Jase Weslosky:
2010-11 stats [career]: 9-7-3 record, 2.79 GAA, .916 save percentage.
Quote: “I definitely wouldn’t have an issue coming back at all.”
Pros: He only played four games in a Reign uniform, but Weslosky’s numbers (2-1-0, 2.00, .943) were relatively eye-popping. A fourth-round draft pick by the Islanders in 2006, it’s not unreasonable to think his skills are no fluke. Weslosky has the combination of size (listed at 6-2, 185) and mobility that often allows goalies to move up in the pro ranks.
Cons: There is a decent chance the Kings will send goalie prospect J-F Berube to Ontario next season (similarly to how they developed Jeff Zatkoff), leaving one opening in net. Regardless, Karl Taylor has at most two open goalie jobs. He might be able to find a better candidate than Weslosky, a second-year pro who passed a four-game audition.
