#NHLJets agree to terms with goaltenders Eddie Pasquale & Michael Hutchinson
 
As per https://twitter.com/BrownScottTN.

I got a little excited for a moment, thinking it would be one of the big three. But, still happy nonetheless.

Speaking of Hutchinson, anyone have a scouting report on him? Seems like he is ECHL bound or AHL backup.

Hutchinson isn't a bad depth guy to have.

Big goalie (6'3) former 3rd rounder.

It creates competition for the AHL betwee Olkinuora, Pasquale and Hutchinson.

Pasquale has career AHL Sv% of 0.907 with 2600 SA.
Hutchinson has career AHL Sv% of 0.916 with 2200 SA.

Ondrej Pavelec has career AHL Sv% of 0.912 with 2500 SA.

Uhh there are 2 parties in a negotiation. This place is almost as bad as the bombers boards.

garret9 07-19-2013 03:48 PM

Chevy can only talk to one agent per a day! :P

you don't want to be a mod over there. Tons of editing every day.

Holden Caulfield 07-19-2013 04:56 PM

Sigh, your IceCaps 2013-14 goalies ladies and gentlemen.

Relegates Olkinuora back to Ontario, where he will likely battle either Berube (returning vet may be headed to Manchester), Bartosak (one of my favourite goalie prospects, GREAT LA pick) or Niederberger (recently signed by Manchester) for playing time. Will be interesting to see how Olkinuora handles that, be he has been proving that he can battle and win playing time his whole career.

allan5oh 07-19-2013 05:08 PM

Is it odd for us to carry this many goalies?

Nope. Most teams carry 5 goalies.

I was hoping for a Bartosak at the draft so we could have Bartosak and Olkinuora battle it out for the spot behind Pasquale, but clearly the Jets wanted another AHL veteran.

Hank Chinaski 07-19-2013 05:20 PM

Not out of the question that the IceCaps will carry all three to start the season, that's what they did in 2011-12 with Pasquale, Mannino and Aebischer.

allan5oh 07-19-2013 05:22 PM

I forgot about carrozzi last year.

Why do you assume he is relegated to the ECHL rather than one of these two?

Hutchinson is an AHL veteran. He has played there and been moderately successful.

Pasquale was IceCaps starter last year, he will not headed down to ECHL at this point.


And most importantly, both Pasquale and Hutchinson are not signed to ELC's. Due to this they must approve a move to the ECHL (have the right to refuse the assignment). As both are proven AHL netminders, neither will accept that move. However Olkinuora is on an ELC, which means Jets can assign him there without his approval.

There is really no question Olkinuora will start in ECHL, IMO.

Not that that is neccessarily a bad thing. Many many excellent NHL netminders started there.

Sweech 07-20-2013 06:02 AM

Michael Hutchinson, former Barrie Colts netminder.

It was made to be.

I'm really happy we haven't just settled on Pasquale holding down the fort for the IceCaps as he's had some inconsistency and never seems to look good whenever I see him. If only the Jets could learn a lesson from this - I'm looking at you Pavelec.

TNSE cares more about the AHL team than the NHL team :sarcasm:

maximus tacitus 07-20-2013 03:03 PM

good for Zinger - you could tell in that interview awhile back he was pissed with the Ice Caps season

Boreal 07-20-2013 03:52 PM

I have not heard of him before, however, looking at the numbers, in conjunction with the other moves that have been made, as well as the graduating players from junior, and it is looking like St. John's could be quite solid next year.

Time to get rid of the colander we have as our #1 then.

Who? Pasquale? Pavelec? You're not seriously thinking that we have anyone who is ready to assume a full time starter role, are you?

Newfy IceCapd 07-21-2013 11:24 AM

Eddie had a rough year that's no secret. Bringing in a guy that can compete with him is the best situation. Don't know much about this Hutchinson guy but his stats in the AHL are around Eddie's. The Caps are looking good this year :handclap:

Not full time, no, but the writing as they say should be on the wall.

There's one sure fire way to end the debate; Pavalec can deliver league average results.
