Liam played an important role in the Eels winning season. No doubt his performances caught the eye of a number of college coaches, and he had a number of options to choose from.

As a goalie, Liam is cool calm and poised in net. He has excellent skill set and tracks the puck very well. He has a lightning fast glove and very strong on rebound control.
