Fantasy Summary

An smaller, acrobatic goalie that makes his saves through great reflexes and efficient movement.

February 2024 – Leenders comes in at #2 in our goalie rankings, but only just barely. In contrast to the calm and conservative George, Leenders plays with a bit more flash – using strong skating, reaction time, and athletic ability to make saves. That is not to say that Leenders is not an excellent technical goaltender; his movements and selections usually leave little to be desired. He clearly thinks the game at a high level and is consistently able to anticipate play and control rebounds at a rate superior to his peers. There may be some concerns with his size as a relatively smaller goaltender, but Leenders appears to have the tools to succeed despite this. – Colin Hunter
