The Grand Rapids Griffins and Toledo Walleye made moves today, with the Griffins reassigning Dylan Sadowy and Patrick McCarron to Toledo, and the Walleye signing a back-up for Pat Nagle, as reported by the Toledo Blade’s Mark Monroe:
The Toledo Walleye have acquired goaltender Angus Redmond, a 22-year-old rookie.
Redmond was assigned to Toledo from San Diego of the American Hockey League on Thursday. Redmond, a native of Langley, British Columbia, started his pro career with the ECHL’s Utah Grizzlies in October.
Redmond has played in 18 games for Utah and has posted a 2-8-2 record with a 4.07 goals-against average.
Redmond played last season at Michigan Tech University in the Western Conference Hockey Association, going 22-10-5 with a 1.85 GAA and .917 save percentage. Redmond led the NCAA in goals-against average for most of the 2016-17 season and also ranked among the top 10 in save percentage and winning percentage.
The 6-foot-1, 200-pound goalie also was in net for Michigan Tech’s 3-2 double-overtime win over Bowling Green State University in the WCHA championship game last March.
Redmond signed a three-year entry level NHL contract with the Anaheim Ducks shortly after his collegiate career ended. He was subsequently assigned to Utah, Anaheim’s ECHL affiliate.
