The Pittsburgh native was named Warrior Hockey/ECHL Goaltender of the Year for his work in 2017-18, posting a 28-7-3 record. His goals against average of 1.86 was the best in the ECHL and the fourth best in league history.

After skating in Washington Capitals training camp last season, he spent the 2017-18 campaign with the ECHL's Wheeling Nailers, posting a 18-14-2 record in 36 games with a 3.12 goals against average, a .905 save percentage, and one shutout.
The 6-foot-3, 194-pound netminder has appeared in 146 career ECHL games with Utah, South Carolina, Reading, Fort Wayne, Greenville, Rapid City, and Wheeling and posted a 67-54-18 record with a 2.85 goals against average, .910 save percentage, and nine shutouts.
