ST. JOHN’S, NL (November 2, 2015) – Montreal Canadiens and St. John’s IceCaps General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today the IceCaps have recalled goaltender Eddie Pasquale from the Brampton Beast of the ECHL.

Forward Stefan Fournier was also reassigned from Brampton.

Pasquale has posted a 1-4-1 win-loss record with the Beast, including a 3.88 goals against average and a .877 save percentage. The 24-year-old Toronto native has not dressed for the IceCaps so far this season. He was signed in July 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, he sat out the entire 2014-15 season recuperating from hip surgery.
