AHL Goalie News — Friday, Oct. 2

The AHL season starts tonight with only two games but all three Texas teams playing. Texas meets San Antonio, and Houston bookends its summer facing Manitoba, to whom they lost out of the playoffs in May.

Features

  • The Binghamton Senators had a nice trio of goalies competing for the two AHL slots, but ultimately sent Chris Holt to ECHL Elmira. Mike Brodeur and Andy Chiodo will man the pipes for Bingo for now. (Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin)
  • Here’s some video from Bingo, too:  Binghamton Senators feel good about their goaltending (Fox 40 WICZ)
  • While the Manitoba Moose have some concerns about goal scoring, goaltending appears to be solid with Cory Schneider and Daren Machesney between the pipes. (Winnipeg Free Press)
  • From the OMGOuchScary File is Lowell Devils goalie Jeff Frazee getting sliced in the neck by a skate blade during a scrimmage on Tuesday. He’ll be fine but, yikes. Never want to see that. (Star-Ledger)
  • John Curry, assigned to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins from Pittsburgh’s camp, is out to prove he belongs in the NHL backing up Marc-Andre Fleury. (Citizens Voice)
  • An update on the goalie situation in Hershey, including a slightly injured Michal Neuvirth. (Stack the Pads)
  • Finally, Albany River Rats goalie Justin Peters is back in action and has the confidence of his team and his coaches on his side. (The Saratogian)

About The Author

Heather Galindo

I cover the AHL Houston Aeros for ProHockeyNews.com, which has focused my passion for goaltending on minor league goalies mainly in the AHL. To stay abreast of every last drop of AHL goalie news, follow me at @InGoalMagAHL on Twitter while the big news, analysis, etc. will be posted here at InGoalMag.com. I was so inspired by watching the goalies here in Houston a few years ago that I went out and learned to skate and play hockey in order to become a goalie myself. So far I'm still more sieve than goalie, but I've never had more fun being so terrible at something!
