Organizational Comments: Chris Osgood - Wings Goaltending Consultant "Obviously, he was raw when I first saw him early in the season. As the season went on, he really improved. He's an athletic guy. What I like about him is he's athletic when he needs to be but he's got a calm demeanor to him. When he was playing, you could tell his team knew he was calm, a real competitor. They played hard for him. He's a real good teammate from what I hear on all accounts."
What GRC says: Spring 2013: Paterson will get a chance to learn some lessons practicing and working out with the pros. He probably won't see any ice, and is a t least a year away from the AHL.
