OTTAWA - The Ottawa Senators (@Senators) announced today that the club has signed goaltender Joey Daccord to a two-year entry-level contract. Daccord will join the Senators tomorrow and remain with the NHL club for the duration of the season.
Daccord, 22, recently concluded his junior season with the NCAA's Arizona State Sun Devils, seeing his collegiate playing career come to an end with a 2-1 loss to Quinnipiac on Saturday. The 6-3, 205 pound native of North Andover, Mass., posted a 21-12-1 record this past season with a 2.36 goal-against average and .926 save percentage while earning seven shutout victories.
Named one of the five finalists for the Mike Richter Award, annually awarded to the most outstanding goaltender in college hockey, Daccord is also a nominee for the Hobey Baker Award, in recognition of the nation's top player. He leaves Arizona State having set career highs in games (34), wins (21), goals-against-average (2.36), save percentage (.926) and shutouts (seven) in 2018-19.
Daccord was Ottawa's seventh-round pick, (199th overall) in the 2015 NHL Draft.
