St. John’s IceCaps PRESS RELEASE
MONTREAL, QUEBEC (July 3, 2015) – Montreal Canadiens and St. John’s IceCaps General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today the IceCaps have signed goaltender Eddie Pasquale to a one-year American Hockey League contract for the 2015-16 season.
An original IceCap, Pasquale played three seasons in St. John’s from 2011-12 to 2013-14 and holds many team records, including most games played by a netminder – 112.
Selected by the Atlanta Thrashers 117th overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft., Pasquale was traded by the Winnipeg Jets to the Washington Capitals last summer in an exchange of draft picks. However, the 24-year-old, Toronto native sat out the entire 2014-15 season recuperating from hip surgery.
