In 2009/10 playing Jr A for Markham, Palazzese appeared in 29games with a 16-8-2-1 record posting a 2.81GAA .905SV% 2SO. In what is sure to be a pretty weak draft year for goaltending from the OHL, Palazzese could be a bit of a wildcard. He struggled to adapt to the OHL in the few games he saw action in last year, but he was pretty good playing in Tier Two. He’s a tall thin goaltender that has good technical skills. He needs to work hard on his positioning, rebound control and his latteral movement. He’ll backup Phillip Grubauer for the Frontenacs, but the team should be his when Grubauer leaves for the World Junior Championships to play for Germany In Buffalo this year.
