Thrashers agree to terms with RFA goalie Mannino
The Atlanta Thrashers have agreed to terms with restricted free agent goaltender Peter Mannino on a multiple-year contract, according to General Manager Rick Dudley. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Mannino, 26, appeared in 38 games with the American Hockey League's Chicago Wolves, posting a 26-5-1 record with two shutouts, a 2.34 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage. He set career highs in wins and was named the AHL Goaltender of the Month for January after posting a 6-1-0 record with a 1.28 goals-against average and a .958 save percentage. Mannino earned a 6-5 record with two shutouts in 12 Calder Cup Playoff appearances for the Wolves.

The 6-1, 190-pound goaltender has posted a 43-17-3 record with three shutouts, a 2.63 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage in 72 career AHL games with Bridgeport and Chicago. He also appeared in three National Hockey League games with the New York Islanders during the 2008-09 season, earning a 1-1-0 mark.

Prior to his professional career, Mannino earned a 63-32-5 record with 15 shutouts, a 2.36 goals-against average and a .917 save percentage in 103 career games with the University of Denver from 2004 to 2008. He helped lead the Pioneers to the 2005 NCAA National Championship and finished his career as the school's all-time leader in shutouts.

Mannino, who was undrafted, was originally signed by the Islanders as a free agent on July 3, 2008. He signed with the Thrashers as a free agent on July 5, 2009.
