Hildeby, who stands 6’6″ and weighs 234 pounds, has already been passed over in the draft a couple of times but put up solid numbers this past season. Through 12 games at the J20 level, he put up a 2.80 GAA and .931 SV%, and managed a 1.93 GAA to go along with a .931 SV% through seven games in the SHL.
