After backstopping Yale to an NCAA title, Jeff Malcolm has landed a deal with the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack.
The 24-year-old Malcolm has spent the last four years at Yale, and last season was a dream for the netminder. In 30 appearances, the Lethbridge, Alta., native backstopped the Bulldogs in 30 games and posted a 2.24 GAA and .919 SV%. Malcolm was a huge factor in the Bulldogs NCAA Championship, registering a 36 save shutout in the final game of the Frozen Four tournament.
Undrafted, Malcolm will make his professional debut next season with the Wolf Pack. At 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, Malcolm has good size and it will be interesting to see if he can challenge for a starting role in the A this coming season.
