May 2017 – Berdin has lightning-quick reflexes, and is highly aware on the ice, which helps him effectively track difficult-to-trace shots in traffic. He blocks rapid-fire shots well when bombarded and seems best when challenged, but sometimes can slip up when action slows and he gets out of his rhythm. He’s also not afraid to go beyond the top of the crease to meet approaching shooters. Could stand to add some bulk to his lanky, 163-pound frame.
Spent the 2016-17 USHL campaign with a sub-.500 Sioux Falls squad yet registered solid stats with a 14-12-1-3 record, 2.73 goals-against average, and .925 save percentage, tied for second in the league. Dominated the 2015-16 World Junior A Challenge with a 0.80 GAA, .968 SV% and was named to the tournament’s all-star Team joining Cale Makar, Tyson Jost and German Rubtsov. Kevin Wickersham
