Officially my favourite pick of the draft. Can’t wait to see how he develops.

I've been an Everett STH for the past few years; of course we miss Hart but haven't missed a beat with Wolf. He is the real deal and an absolute steal for late 7th round.

Like all goalies needs time to develop, but a very real shot at being an NHLer. Glad to see the 'Tips fans that made the short drive up I-5 to show some support. Excited!!

He has really good stats and seems to have been quite highly touted. Why did he fall so far?

Didn't think the Flames needed to draft any goalies this year, but at least it was the 7th round and not the first.

Small, and Everett seems to play a system that leads to good goalie stats without necessarily having good goalies. Kind of like the Islanders last year.

7th round is the correct time to draft goalies! Wolf is tiny by modern goalie standards, but easily worth taking a chance on with those numbers.

His Everett team was the best defensive team in the dub by far, giving up only 130 goals and 15 were empty netters.

A number of teams probably would've extended him a development camp invite. The Flames sent him an engraved one.

He's the same height as Juuse Saros. He just needs to put on 20 lbs of muscle.

I don't know why but with the name Dustin Wolf I feel like this kid was destined to be a goalie. It just seems like a goalie name.

This video of Tre talking about Wolf at beginning shows a glimpse of the flames crew in the box....and low and behold, sitting on the sofa with a white shirt, hair slicked back and tie around his neck? Burkie. Love that guy.

ironically, our own current goalie coach used to hold that position at Everett before going to Abbotsford in 2011.

Absolutely love this pick. Size obviously an issue but otherwise you wouldn't get that guy this late in the draft. Will be rooting hard for the kid.

As much as the super-tall goalies get all the hype, it certainly isn't a requirement to win in the NHL.

I got curious as to the heights of the recent Cup winning goalies (then, I kept going beyond "recent"). Heights are from hockeydb.com...
  • Binnington: 6'1"
  • Holtby: 6'2"
  • Murray: 6'4"
  • Crawford: 6'2"
  • Quick: 6'1"
  • Thomas: 5'11"
  • Niemi: 6'2"
  • Fleury: 6'2"
  • Osgood: 5'10"
  • Giguere: 6'1"
  • Ward: 6'1"
  • Kiprusoff: 6'1"
  • Brodeur: 6'2"
  • Hasek: 6'2"
  • Roy: 6'0"
  • Belfour: 5'11"
  • Vernon: 5'9"
  • Richter: 5'11"
  • Barrasso: 6'3"
  • Ranford: 5'11"
  • Fuhr: 5'11"
  • Moog: 5'9"
  • Smith: 5'10"
  • Dryden: 6'4"

Matt Murray is 6'4". You have to go all the way back to Ken Dryden in the late-70s to find the next most-recent (and only other) 6'4" Cup-winning goalie. Murray, Dryden, and Barrasso are the only Cup-winning goalies in NHL history to exceed 6'2".

In fact, looking at that list, when there is a height-discrepancy between goalies in the Final, the shorter goalie usually wins. Post-lockout, it looks like 2009, when Fleury beat Osgood, is the only year that the taller goalie in the Final won the Cup.

Even though Murray is the tallest goalie to win the Cup in the last 40 years, he was shorter than Rinne and the same height as Jones in the two years he won.

----------


Wolf might seem short when compared to guys like Rinne, Bishop, or Smith, but he's not that much shorter than Binnington, Quick, or even Kipper.

Also, Wolf is 18, so he may not have stopped growing.
