Fantasy Summary

A towering, athletic netminder who has found consistency by improving his posture and positioning. Will be a long wait in fantasy but has the tools to become an NHL starter down the line.

June 2022 – The undrafted Guzda had a comeback season after being traded mid-year to become the starter of the Barrie Colts (OHL). He had some difficulty adapting to the OHL level a couple years ago, which is a bit concerning, but he focused on playing strong angles with more aggression and his teammates now praise the confidence he inspires. He excelled during the season and showed the ability to elevate his game in the playoffs (0.929). With Sergei Bobrovsky signed long-term and Spencer Knight his clear heir apparent, Guzda will have time and space to continue his development under the tutelage of Florida alum Roberto Luongo. He will likely end up starting for the AHL Checkers over the next few years until he is ready to become Florida’s back up. Ben Gehrels
