Fantasy Summary

Big goalie with quick reflexes. Lateral mobility sometimes a question but can make up for it with strong positioning and instincts

June 2022 – The 22-year-old Mandolese saw 17 games in Belleville in the AHL where he had a 3.12 GAA and a 90.1 save percentage. Because of the crowded crease in Belleville he saw six games with Atlanta in the ECHL and had a 2.68 GAA and a 91.6 save percentage. He should have the back up role in Belleville next season and get into 25-35 games as he continues to progress. Grant Campbell

March 2021 – Mandolese is off to a solid start in his first professional campaign, stopping 42 pucks to earn his first professional win in a 3-2 game against the Toronto Marlies. Despite limited action so far, his lateral movement and ability to track the puck in high danger situations has been extremely impressive. The only thing holding Mandolese back so far is the pure number of goalies ahead of him in the Senators’ system. With that being said, the injury bug has hit the organization hard, so keep an eye out for more opportunities to arise in the future. Jacob Barker
