Springfield, MA – The Springfield Falcons of the American Hockey League (AHL) today announced that the club has signed goaltender Scott Dickie. As per club policy, terms of the agreements are not being disclosed.
Dickie backstopped the Ontario Hockey League’s (OHL) Kitchener Rangers to a Memorial Cup championship last season. The netminder won all four of Kitchener’s Memorial Cup games, compiling a 2.25 goals against average (GAA) and .911 save percentage (SV%), and was honored with the Hap Emms Memorial Trophy as the tournament’s outstanding goaltender. During the regular campaign, Dickie registered a GAA of 2.59, the lowest in the franchise’s 40-year history, as well as a .914 SV% and 30-7-3 record. The London, Ontario native accumulated a record of 87-56-16 over his four-year OHL career with Kitchener.
“Dickie comes highly rated by scouts and will certainly add to the club’s depth in the upcoming season,” said Falcons president and general manager Bruce Landon.
“It’s nice to be given the opportunity to play professional hockey and hopefully start off a long career,” said Dickie. “I am looking forward to attending Phoenix’s (Coyotes) camp with Marcus (Smith) in September”.
