Here's what RedWingsCentral had to say about Paterson

Paterson was ranked third among North American goaltenders by Central Scouting. Was at his best later in the season, particularly in the OHL playoffs. Has good size and covers the net down low, and more importantly, gives the Red Wings another good young goaltending prospect to complement Petr Mrazek.
