Pearce, 24, went 20-15-5 with a 2.89 goals-against average and .908 save percentage in 2010-11 with Detroit's American Hockey League affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins. He made 1,164 saves in 44 appearances and actually made 20 straight starts (12-6-2) when he seized the starting role down the stretch to almost lead the Griffins to the playoffs. The native of Alaska has yet to play a game in the NHL.
 
Pearce also appeared in eight contests with the ECHL's Toledo Walleye last season, going 3-5-0 with a 4.13 GAA and .883 save percentage. In 50 games with the Griffins over the last three years, Pearce is 21-18-5 with a 3.01 GAA and .904 save percentage.
Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
