HARTFORD, August 25, 2014: Hartford Wolf Pack general manager Jim Schoenfeld announced today that the Wolf Pack has re-signed goaltender Jeff Malcolm.
Originally signed to an AHL contract July 17, 2013, Malcolm, a second-year man out of Yale University, saw action in six games with the Wolf Pack last season. The 25-year-old Lethbridge, Alberta native went 1-3-0 in those six appearances, with a 2.85 goals-against average and an 88.8% save percentage. In 27 games with the Wolf Pack’s ECHL affiliate, the Greenville Road Warriors, Malcolm was 13-9-0, with a 2.90 GAA and a 91.2% save percentage.
The 6-2, 185-pound Malcolm is a product of Yale University, where he capped off a four-year career in 2012-13 by backstopping the Elis to the first-ever “Frozen Four” title in school history. Malcolm was 20-6-2 in 30 appearances for the Elis in 2012-13, with a 2.24 goals-against average, a 91.9% save percentage and three shutouts. Those numbers represented the second-highest single-season win total, the third-best save percentage and fourth-lowest GAA in Yale Men’s Hockey history. Malcolm also finished second among ECAC goaltenders in wins and tied for third in shutouts.
In his four years at Yale, Malcolm appeared in 67 games, amassing a record of 36-21-4 with a 2.60 GAA, a 90.7% save percentage and six shutouts. Those stats rank him third all-time in school annals in save percentage and wins, and fourth in GAA.
The Wolf Pack will open the home portion of their 2014-15 AHL season Saturday, October 18 at the XL Center. To speak with a Wolf Pack representative about season or group tickets, or any of the Wolf Pack’s many ticketing options, call (855) 762-6451.
