Being from Saginaw (and a season ticket holder for the past few years) I got to see Jake a lot. He has t he tools to be a really good goalie in a few years. He started this season a little rough splitting time with the other goaltender here at the time to figure out who the #1 guy was going to be (we had a vet that was the starter last year, who moved on). Jake clearly outplayed the other tender - so much so that the other guy was released! Anyway, once he "knew" he won the #1 spot, he really took off & played really well the last 2/3 of the season, especially after Greg Gilbert came in to be the new coach to settle this team down. He kept getting better as the season went on & was friggin' INSANE in the playoffs! Everyone talked about how he stepped up in the playoffs when he was most needed! I like the pick - Paterson will be good!

And all us Wings fans will get to see him play in the outdoor game this Winter at Comerica Park!

This is awesome. I was a season ticket holder this past season for the Spirit and loved watching Jake. So excited to see a baby Red Wings develop :).

#3 rated North American G...could see him on Canada's WJC team this year. that would be a good stage to see his Jr capabilities playing against the best the Jr's have to offer.

This offseason will determine whether Ken Holland should still be employed with the Wings organization.

 

Please put Smith on the Power Play!
