The St. John’s IceCaps announced that they have signed goaltender Eddie Pasquale to a one-year AHL contract. This means that he could be playing for their AHL affiliate in St. John’s or be sent down to the ECHL and play for Brampton.

Pasquale, 24, was drafted by the now defunct Atlanta Thrashers in the fourth round of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft. He has never appeared in an NHL game and with this new deal, he will not get a chance to with the Canadiens. The 6’2″ netminder played for the IceCaps for three seasons while they were the affiliate for the Winnipeg Jets. He appeared in 112 regular season games and 15 in the post-season over that span.

Last summer, Pasquale was dealt to the Washington Capitals for draft picks. He was unable to suit up for their farm team in Hershey due to undergoing hip surgery. Now healthy, Pasquale will be looking to get back to his most recent form that posted a .920 save percentage in 31 games during the 2013-14 season.

It is unknown where Pasquale will start the upcoming year as he will have to battle for a role on the IceCaps. Mike Condon, who was the Hamilton Bulldogs starter last year, and rookie Zach Fucale will be his competition.
