The Leafs announced today signing of goalie Ben Scrivens to a two year contract. The implications of this are fairly obvious. In 39 regular season games with the Marlies, Ben Scrivens earned a record of 22-15-1, four shutouts, an AHL-best 2.04 GAA and a .926 save percentage.

He was named AHL’s goaltender of the month for March and had received AHL’s Harry Hap Holmes Memorial Award for allowing the fewest goals in the regular season (with a minimum of 25 games played). Scrivens added to his great season with a very good Calder Cup playoffs, playing in all of 17 Marlies games and earning a 1.92 GAA, a .935 save percentage and three shutouts in the process.

Here is a nice highlight pack for you to enjoy. This isn’t exactly a press stopping news announcement and certainly not a huge surprise but be glad we got the kid under contract. He’s a talented young goalie who most certainly proved it last season and has shown he can consistently produce good performances in lower level hockey. Now, he just might have to do it in the big leagues.
