"There's a lot to like about his game," Central Scouting's Al Jensen said. "He's a big goalie (6-foot-4, 212 pounds). Covers a lot of the net. His positional play is very good. Got a phenomenal butterfly, great rebound control. He's got that NHL net presence when you look at him."
2019 recruit Joel Farabee scored a late power play goal but Team USA’s rally fell short with Sweden claiming a 4-3 quarterfinal win in the World U17 Challenge in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont. Farabee has scored in each of Team USA’s four games including two game-winners. 2018 recruit Jake Wise, who scored twice in the preliminary round, assisted on Team USA’s second goal. With six points in the tournament, Farabee leads the NTDP U17s in scoring with 12 (6G, 6A).
