June 2022 – Spending the bulk of this past season in the ECHL with the Idaho Steelheads, Point proved that there is still hope for him – putting up a .912 save percentage in 19 games. However, in five AHL games this season, his performance was absolutely brutal, with a .843 save percentage and a 4.40 goals-against-average. With the emergence of Adam Scheel, who will most likely take a bigger role with the Texas Stars next season, Point could see more time in the ECHL, although, only 24, all hope is not lost as he still has several seasons of development to go. Now an RFA, it will be interesting to see if the Stars organization still believes in his potential, and gives him another NHL contract, although with other more exciting goaltenders in their system, he could see a change of scenery in the offseason.

March 2018 – The sophomore goalie is having a fantastic year for Colgate University. He’s posting a 1.72 GAA, and .946 save percentage, which shows the the level of play he’s clicking at. The Stars fan base would like to think he’s the best goalie in the NCAA, and the way he’s playing they may not be that far off. Point made Team Canada for the world junior championship, and played backup to Carter Hart. Point only received one start, but it was a 20 save shutout of Slovakia. All of a sudden the Stars have a good crop of young goalies between Point and Oettinger, as there is no clear favorite as to who is better at this time. Matt Kowalski

July 2016 – Point was drafted in the fifth round by the Dallas Stars to begin replenishing the organizational goaltender pool. He played in the Central Canada Hockey League, one of Canada’s Junior A leagues. He was ranked fourth among North American goalies by Central Scouting in their final ranking. Point played for the Carleton Place Canadiens in 33 games, earning a 23-6-1-1 record with six shutouts.  Point posted a 2.15 goals-against average, which led the CCHL, and a .915 save percentage that he was able to improve upon in 16 post-season contests.

Point can have issues with rebounds and some clunky movements but battles hard and moves well. Point also has a tendency to drop his glove, a bit of Felix Potvin-style glove position. He will attend the Hockey Canada U20 Goalie Camp this summer before he heads off to Colgate University in the fall. Point will be allowed plenty of time to develop in the NCAA but at 6-4 with solid, but raw ability, he could be a late-round steal. Zachary DeVine
