Twitter report: Griffins sign Sarnia Sting goalie Justin Fazio to Amateur Try-Out deal

Via Mark MacDonald on Twitter, CHOK Radio Sarnia’s Josh Boyce reports that Sarnia Sting goaltender Justin Fazio has signed an Amateur Try-Out (ATO) with the Grand Rapids Griffins:

Fazio, a 20-year-old who’s 6’1″ and 189 pounds, played 51 games for the Sting this past season, going 37-11-and-3 with a 2.85 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage.

He’ll probably serve as a Black Ace and goaltender on the Griffins’ practice squad; he signed an ATO with the AHL’s Charlotte Checkers last spring, ultimately spending his spring with the ECHL’s Reading Royals.
