CBJ Draft Central

Throughout the next few days, we will occasionally feature an NHL.com video inteview with several of this year's NHL Draft prospects. Today's subject is Anthony Stolarz of the Corpus Christi IceRays (NAHL), a 6-foot-5 goalie prospect that has garnered a lot of attention coming out of the Scouting Combine.

Not only is his size an appealing asset for NHL clubs in search of goaltending help, but Stolarz's path to this point is indicative of a fierce competitor. Prior to this past season, he didn't have a team to play for and it took a recommendation to earn him an invite to the IceRays' training camp. Stolarz earned his spot, and this fall, he will play college hockey for Dean Blais at the University of Nebraska-Omaha.

Here is a brief scouting report on Stolarz, via Al Jensen of NHL Central Scouting:

"He reminds me of Ben Bishop. He's tall and not wearing big equipment, but has great athleticism, great drive and determination. He's controlled, has great reflexes. He's got that quickness that's required in a pro goalie."
