Scott has the same wingspan as Eemeli Räsänen, except he’s four inches shorter. He also scored very well in the vertical jump and the standing long jump, both events that goalies often do well in. The wingspan is key, however. There were at least eight goalies in the top 25 at this year’s combine. Reach matters, and most of the drafted goalies were disproportionately long-limbed compared to the skaters.

Lol whut?

Some people simply have longer arms than others.  I knew a guy in university who was like that.
