Fantasy Summary

A smooth 6-4 goalie who has been tremendous for the last two seasons. Reading plays and stopping pucks have been his strong suit


Observations

Click to Expand

October 2023 – Stevenson played great in the ECHL, in what will likely be his only season there, as he finished the year with a 19-12-3 record, posting a 0.916 save percentage. In five playoff games, Stevenson registered a 0.926 in a round losing effort. He was called up for three games in the AHL and won all three and posted a 0.924 sv%. Stevenson is really putting himself on the map as a goalie prospect to own, the issue is the contracts in front of him at the AHL level, and him being 24 needing a shot sooner than later. Stevenson will battle Shepard for the starting role in the AHL this season. Pat Quinn

 

January 2023 – Stevenson has been great in the ECHL this year as the Stingrays really seem to be the starting point for Washington goalie prospects. In 16 games, as he plays half the games, he has 10 wins and a 0.931 save percentage. It is early, but Stevenson is exceeding expectations already. However, because it is the Capitals, expect at least three seasons before he sees the NHL. Pat Quinn

 

December 2022 – Stevenson was called up to Hershey as Shepard was called up to the NHL. He got in three games and did not look out of place with three wins and a 0.924 save percentage. Hershey is a strong team defensively too so that may inflate his numbers a bit too. Pat Quinn

 

October 2022 – Stevenson is confirmed to play a majority of his season in the ECHL with the South Carolina Stingrays, as he follows a similar development path from other Capital’s goalie prospects. Pat Quinn

 

September 2022 – With Copley moving on as a free agent an opportunity opens up in the AHL/ECHL for Capitals goalies. The AHL starter gig likely goes to Fucale with Huntter Shepard as the likely back-up considering the time he has spent in the ECHL already. Expect Stevenson to be the starter in the ECHL for the Sting Rays as the Capitals always bring goalies along the same development path. Pat Quinn

 

April 2022 – The Capitals signed the most-sought after NCAA free agent goaltender to a two-year ELC beginning in the 2022-2023 season. The signing may be signaling Mitchell Gibson staying in the NCAA for an additional season, or not signing with the Capitals, so if that competition is out of the way then there is currently not a lot of competition for Stevenson to climb the ranks in Washington. He has been fantastic in his last two playing season, not including 2020-2021 where he played no recorded games, with a 0.936 save percentage in 35 BCHL games for the Coquitlam Express. This year in the NCAA, for Dartmouth College, he had a losing record but a 0.922 sv% in 23 games. He will very likely play in the ECHL or the Capitals next season, as that follows the team’s development path for goaltenders, and it will be interesting to see if he can keep up his strong play.
