Daniel Dirracolo is a confident goaltender with the skill to back it up. One of the most noticeable aspects of Dirracolo’s game is how calm he is between the pipes. The Toronto Jr. Canadiens netminder is always dialed into the game and is ready to go at any moment. He is not an easy goalie to catch off-guard or find out of position. He possesses quick reflexes and can rob opponents on great offensive chances. While Dirracolo has the speed and skill necessary to succeed, he doesn't need to make highlight-reel saves to stand out. It's his positioning and his ability to follow the puck that stands out. Dirracolo is always where he needs to be and is great at tracking pucks to limit scoring chances. He has a strong glove hand due to his quick reflexes and speed and can make big glove-hand stops in high danger situations. Dirracolo's vision and mentality on the ice is what sets him apart from others. He is always calm, cool, and collected, and tracks the puck better then almost any other 2005 goaltender.
