Spirit’s Cormier sets franchise goaltending games played record

 

New Jersey Devils prospect Evan Cormier of the Saginaw Spirit became the franchise’s new career leader in games played by a goaltender on Sunday in North Bay.

Cormier helped his club earn a point, making 29 saves in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Battalion as he suited up in his 167th career regular season game in a Spirit uniform to surpass Jake Paterson (2010-15) for the franchise lead.

Cormier already made Spirit history earlier this season when he surpassed Paterson on Dec. 16th for the franchise lead in career shutouts with six.

A 20-year-old native of Bowmanville, Ont., Cormier has appeared in 38 games this season, going 18-14-4-0 with a 3.06 goals-against average and a .904 save percentage. In his 178 career OHL regular season contests between Saginaw and North Bay, he’s registered a 75-72-14-5 record with a 3.33 goals-against average, an .896 save percentage and eight shutouts.

North Bay’s fifth round pick from the Clarington Toros in the 2013 OHL Priority Selection, Cormier earned a bronze medal with Canada at the 2015 IIHF World Under-18 Hockey Championship in Zug and Lucerne, Switzerland.

He was a fourth round (105th overall) pick by the New Jersey Devils in the 2016 NHL Draft.
