Rather than signing a "random" ECHL filler, they found a very decent goaltender in Tyson Sexsmith who signed a PTO contract with the team
Sexsmith was drafted by the Sharks in 2007 and played parts of three seasons in Worcester. He even played in the AHL all-star game last year.
Also, the Heat didn't have to go far to find Sexsmith because he lives in Mission, BC. According to Google maps, it's a 25 minutes drive to get from Mission to Abbotsford.
I like the Sexsmith signing - even if it is mainly for insurance and convenience. From what little I've read of his recent experience he's earned another look in the A.
