RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Jeff Frazee.
Frazee's days as the presumptive heir apparent to Martin Brodeur may be coming to a close with the emergence of Keith Kinkaid and Scott Wedgewood as viable prospects. Frazee has battled injuries the last two seasons and registered a 12-19-2 record with Albany (AHL) last season, posting a 2.67 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage. He'll be battling with Wedgewood and Kinkaid for starts at the AHL level, as the Devils have Brodeur and Johan Hedberg locked up for the next two seasons.
Frazee is one of New Jersey's most highly-touted goalie prospects but he is, at best, third on the team's depth chart behind Brodeur and Johan Hedberg. Expect Frazee to begin the season AHL Albany and be one of the first names called up to Newark if either of the aforementioned twine tenders sustain an injury.
Frazee is one of the Devils brightest prospects and could be the long-term replacement for Martin Brodeur. He's athletic, big and turned in an All-Star season with Lowell one year ago. He'll have a shot to make the big club as the team's backup, but don't be surprised if he starts the season in Lowell.
After putting on a show at the 2007 Junior Worlds, Frazee saw his job at The "U" usurped after playing just 14 games. He signed with the Devils in April and is definitely in their future plans as a potential replacement for Martin Brodeur. Frazee will spend the season in Lowell (AHL).
One of the few goaltending prospects in the Devils farm system, Frazee was drated in 2005 and helped lead the U.S. to a gold medal in the 2005 U-18 championships.
Frazee is an athletic and acrobatic six-footer with sideshow-freak flexibility. He plays the angles well and stays square to the puck. Best of all, he's a big money netminder. He outpaced higher-ranked Carey Price (Canada) and Tukka Rask (Finland) to win the gold medal for the US at the 2005 U-18 World tourney. He's incredibly calm under extreme pressure to the point of seemingly completely unflappable. He'll ply his trade at the University of Minnesota in 2005-2006.
