Calgary Flames Executive Vice-President and General Manager Darryl Sutter announced today the signing of goaltender Jean-Philippe Lamoureux to an American Hockey League Contract with the Flames affiliate Abbotsford Heat.
Lamoureux, a native of Grand Forks, North Dakota, made his professional debut in 2008-09 with Alaska (ECHL) where he helped guide the Aces to the Kelly Cup Championship.
Jean-Philippe spent the 2009-10 season with the Portland Pirates (AHL) playing in 28 games earning 14 wins, two shutouts and registering a 2.98 GAA.
For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
