The Draft Analyst Ranking:
Lightning-quick netminder who spearheaded Windsor’s assault on Memorial Cup competition, winning the top goaltender award while coming out victorious in all four games for his hometown team. DiPietro is an energetic goalie with excellent quickness which helps make up for his nonstandard size in terms of covering the upper half of the net. His rebound control is excellent, as DiPietro places the hardest of low-danger shots perfectly into the corner. His post-save recovery and net awareness are among the best of any 2017 draft eligible, and he’ll take a stand at the top of his crease in order to fight through screens.
