Daniel Altshuller's Player ProfileDaniel Altshuller joined the Oshawa Generals after a trade with the Belleville Bulls in 2011 and he showed several times throughout the year that he is capable of being a #1 goaltender. He had proved himself in the Central Tier 1 Hockey League, at the 2010 World Under-17 Hockey Challenge, and the 2011 Ivan Hlinka Memorial Tournament. The Generals split the goaltending duties in 2011-12 between him and veteran incumbent starter Kevin Bailie but, whenever Altshuller started, he was solid and played extremely well. Altshuller's technique was different of that of Bailie since the Nepean native was more active in the crease, especially in playing the puck. Altshuller won his first OHL start and he had a five-game winning streak during the middle of the season. When Bailie had an injury in February, Altshuller secured the #1 job for the month. He had a record of 11-16-3 in 20 games, registering a decision in every game he started. His 3.55 goals-against average won him the F.W. "Dinty" Moore Trophy for the OHL's best rookie GAA; he also had a rather solid .900% save percentage.
