Coming off a perfect 5-0-0 record at the OHL cup, Evan Maillet served as an important piece of the Sens’ OHL cup Championship win. Due to being smaller when it comes to goalies, Maillet has built his game off of his skating. Maillet has terrific edgework and is very fast, which allows him to get into position quickly and easily. Maillet excels with his vision, where he tends to scan the ice, and also likes to have full control of the puck before he makes any decisions with it. In the room, Maillet is the type of guy that would be well liked in the room due to his kind, happy, and dedicated personality. On the ice, Maillet is a more intense, hardworking goalie who will battle hard to get the puck away from the net, yet is also very calm and relaxed, which helps boost confidence for his teammates. Maillet has been working more on the mental side of his game, as he understands the importance of being able to stay calm and unphased when the going gets tough. He has come a long way with this training, and instead of feeling nervous before a game, he is more excited to get out and do what he has to do, instead of worrying about the what ifs. Due to his more relaxed style, where his speed, athleticism, and positioning are key, Maillet could be best described as a Juuse Saros type of goalie, but he also tries to pick out some parts from the game of Andrei Vasilevskiy as well. Maillet would love the opportunity to start in the OHL right away, however he understands that goalie development takes a bit longer, and is more than prepared to take a few years of development if that’s what will get him to the next level.
