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.
Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
