Scouting Report: Mark Owuya
Leafs sign another European goalie named Mark Owuya. He is a 20 year old butterfly goalie with a technique that is not very developed nor pretty. Hockey's Future reports that he has good attitude, self confidence and stops the pucks, which it all is about in the end.
He has a lot of advantage being of large size (6’2) and is pretty good at moving side-to-side. Has problems with high shots. Agility could still be better. Sounds like another project at best for coach François Allaire..
The Star reports he is also a rapper that goes by the name Mark In Da Park. Below is an appearance on Swedish Idol (no Simon Cowell). Back in When 2007 when Mark Owuya auditioned for the Swedish version of American Idol, judges had five words for him: “Don’t quit your day job.”
