This guy has been bounced around all over the place and puts up great numbers wherever he goes.  He was born in Barrie and played OHL for the Colts.  The Bruins drafted him in the 3rd round in 2008 and bounced him between the ECHL and AHL until 2013 when he signed a 2 way contract with the Winnipeg Jets.  Again, he was sent to the ECHL where he was pretty much unbeatable and forced the Jets to move him up to St. John's as soon as possible.  He only had 24 games there but won 17 of them and earned a call up to the Jets for his first NHL action.  3 full games including an overtime game and a .943 save percentage was all he did.  I hope to see this guy playing there full time next year.  I think I will try to pickup some more of his cards on ebay.
