The Philadelphia Flyers announced that they have recalled goaltender Scott Munroe from their American Hockey League affiliate, the Philadelphia Phantoms, according to club General Manager Paul Holmgren. Munroe will be available for today’s Flyers-New York Islanders game at the Wachovia Center.
Munroe, 27, has a 22-13-1 record, 2.46 goals-against average, .929 save percentage and three shutouts in 37 games for the Phantoms this season. His 22 wins places him second in the AHL and his .929 save percentage is fourth in the league.
Over parts of the last four seasons (2005-06 through 2008-09), Munroe has appeared in 115 games for the Phantoms, compiling a 55-42-5 record, 2.65 GAA, .918 save percentage and nine shutouts. He was originally signed as a free agent by the Flyers on March 18, 2006.
Munroe joined the Phantoms after completing his senior season at the University of Alabama-Huntsville in 2006. In 31 games for the UAH Chargers during the 2005-06 season, he compiled a 17-11-2 record, 3.01 GAA and .916 save percentage. He was named College Hockey America (CHA) Co-Player of the Year for the 2005-06 season and to the First All-CHA Team for the second consecutive season.
A native of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, Munroe holds UAH records for most games by a goaltender in a career (99), highest career save percentage (.918) and most games played in a single season (31 in 2005-06 and 2004-05).
