Vancouver, B.C. - Vancouver Canucks General Manager Patrik Allvin announced today that the club has agreed to terms on a two-year, one-way contract with goaltender Spencer Martin.
"We're pleased with the success Spencer has had this season, not only in the American Hockey League but also during his stint with Vancouver earlier this year," said Allvin. "He has been very reliable for Abbotsford, contributing greatly to their Calder Cup Playoff berth earlier this month, and has shown an ability to perform in high-pressure situations."
Martin, 26, played three games with Vancouver earlier this season, posting a 1-0-2 record to go along with a 1.59 goals-against average and .958 save percentage. He made 33 saves in a 4-1 victory on January 27 vs Winnipeg to earn his first career NHL win.
The 6'3", 191-pound goaltender has appeared in six career NHL games split between Vancouver and Colorado, recording a 2.93 goals-against average and .916 save percentage.
Martin has spent most of the 2021.22 season with Vancouver's AHL affiliate, the Abbotsford Canucks, ranking t-9th in the league in wins with a 17-4-2 record so far, in addition to a 2.39 goals-against average and .918 save percentage. His three shutouts this season are also t-3rd among AHL goaltenders.
A native of Oakville, Ontario, Martin was selected by Colorado in the third round, 63rd overall in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.
