Prince George Citizen

Fantasy Summary

Combines good size and strong skating to cover the net well. Considered a highly-talented goaltender who at times has lacked consistency.

June 2022 – In his overage season, Gauthier led the WHL with a 0.928 save percentage and was fourth in goals-against with an average of 2.34. Before being eliminated in the second round of the playoffs, he had an incredible 0.937 save percentage and 1.92 goals-against average – league best in both categories. Gauthier is an athletic goaltender, capable of stealing games and making desperation saves. However, the overarching critique throughout his junior career has been his poor rebound control and tendency to scramble. However, his stellar numbers and international resume with Canada speak for themselves. Kyle Watson

March 2022 – Gauthier joins the Penguins system on a three-year ELC that begins next season. The overage goaltender has a 16-2-0 record since joining the Portland Winterhawks. He will finish the season in the WHL and try and add a Memorial Cup to an impressive junior resume which includes a WJC silver medal and a Hlinka-Gretzky gold medal. Next season he will likely compete to start in Wilkes-Barre with Filip Lindberg. Kyle Watson
