The South Surrey, British Columbia native was originally drafted by the New York Rangers in the sixth round, 180th overall in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
Born, raised, work in South Surrey. He's only a year younger than me and there's just 3 high schools in the area... Wonder which one he went to.

He has 10 minutes of NHL experience, stopped both shots he faced. His stats don't look terrible the last few years, wonder why it took this long to earn a stable shot at an AHL club.

The thing is, he doesn't have a shot. Manny, Mason in St. Louis. Bishop, Schwarz in Peoria. He'll have a shot next season, maybe.

Has Legace been having more problems with that hip flexor than originally expected? If so, this could be more of a precautionary depth move.

This was most likely an emergency move in case Bishop goes down.
Mason is playing tonight, and Legace isn't too far off

Mason is starting tonight with Marek Schwarz backing him up.

Bishop and Legace are out.

This is purely precautionary. Probably a good idea to sign the guy now rather than AFTER the crisis that would require a FIFTH FREAKING GOALIE this season. That said, I don't expect to hear his name again this year.
