2015 PLAYOFF HIGHLIGHTS: Stopped 35 of 37 shots on goal to win his first career postseason start in R1G3 ... Relieved Corey Crawford following the first period of R1G1; stopped all 42 shots on goal in his postseason debut.
2014-15 NOTES: Split time between Chicago and the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League ... Helped Crawford and the Blackhawks tie with Montreal for the Jennings Trophy for allowing the fewest goals in the NHL ... Won his NHL debut on Oct. 26 vs. OTT ... Earned his first NHL shutout on March 18 at NYR ... Tallied a 14-8-2 record, 2.20 GAA, .927 save percentage and two shutouts in 26 regular-season games with the IceHogs.
That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
