Evan Cormier Fitting In Nicely In BinghamtonPosted: Updated:
Binghamton, N.Y. - The Binghamton Devils still find themselves at the bottom of the AHL in goals allowed, allowing 143 on the season. However, 21 year-old goalie Evan Cormier has certainly been on route to change that, allowing less than two goals per game during their four game winning streak. The Devils longest streak of their season.
"I can tell you one thing I like about his game is his ability to handle the puck. He's helped our defense out in that area. Technically sound and makes that stop" said head coach Mark Dennehy.
Binghamton hasn't won more than two games in a row since the first week of the season, that being forty games ago. Forty games ago, Cormier was playing college hockey with the University of Guelph. The 2016 fourth-round draft pick,105th overall, of the New Jersey Devils, played 13 games this season with the University of Guelph, posting a 2.27 goals-against average and a .926 save percentage.
"I was at school just doing my own thing. It was during exam season and we were doing our thing.... Then this opportunity came about and it was hard not to pass it up. I'm really excited to be back here" said Cormier.
Cormier has so far collected a 4-1 record with Binghamton and a .933 save percentage.
"The games a lot faster, for sure. But, I feel really comfortable right now for sure, so I gotta keep it simple and keep having fun" said Cormier.
Binghamton Devils host the Hershey Bears Wednesday night at 7:05 pm.
