Nashville, Tenn. (February 25, 2020) - Nashville Predators President of Hockey Operations/GM David Poile announced today that the team has recalled goaltender Connor Ingram on an emergency basis from Milwaukee (AHL).
Ingram, 22 (3/31/97), has appeared in 30 games for the Admirals this season, posting an 18-5-5 record and one shutout. He ranks among the AHL's goaltending leaders in many statistical categories this season - he sits second in save percentage (.931), third in goals-against average (1.98) and tied for sixth in wins (18). The 6-foot-1 netminder has earned the win in seven of his last nine starts and earlier in the season posted a nine-game win streak (Oct. 29-Dec. 6), an AHL career best. He represented the Admirals at the 2020 AHL All-Star Classic in January, his second career appearance in the game and the fourth Milwaukee goaltender since the 2014-15 season to earn a nod to the event. A three-year pro, Ingram has suited up in 87 career AHL games - 57 with the Syracuse Crunch and 30 with Milwaukee - and has recorded a 52-23-7 record, 2.19 goals-against average and 11 shutouts.
Originally drafted in the third round (88th overall) of the 2016 NHL Draft by the Tampa Bay Lightning, Ingram spent three seasons with the WHL's Kamloops Blazers from 2014-17 before joining the pro ranks. He was selected as the Blazers' MVP in his final two seasons with the club, which included a WHL-leading .927 save percentage and a spot on the league's second all-star team in 2016-17. A native of Imperial, Sask., Ingram represented Canada at the 2017 World Junior Championship, posting a 2-1 record, a 2.57 goals-against average and one shutout en route to a silver medal.
