Fantasy Summary

Croteau is a raw but athletic goaltender. Questionable upside due to lack of success on low-danger shots.


Click to Expand
August 2022 – Emmett Croteau is raw, even for a goalie prospect. He’s big, at 6-4, and he did well in six playoff games in the USHL this year (three wins, three losses, .913 SV%), but he has a tendency of letting in low-danger shots that really should not go in. Despite this, his .899 regular season SV% was fifth in the league amongst goalies to have started at least 20 games – which 18 goalies did – none of the four to have put up better numbers than Croteau were first-time draft eligibles, though Tyler Muszelik and Christian Manz put up better numbers in 16 and 18 starts respectively, while Croteau had 35, and Jacob Fowler, a D-1 put up a by far league-best .927 in 18 starts. Like most goaltenders, Croteau is a project pick who will have a near handful of years to develop before the Canadiens need to sign him. He is off to Clarkson University in the NCAA this year, where he will likely stay for the next four seasons. Sebastian High
