Undrafted goaltender Mike Clemente(35) signed an ato with Springfield Falcons for the remainder of the 2011/2012 season after initially signing on with Providence Bruins in the same capacity upon completing his college career.
He played in 6 games posting a 2-1 record with an impressive 1.99 GAA and .930 SV%. He also had one shutout performance.
Barely missing a beat, he officially signed an AHL contract for his rookie season with the team, where he’ll compete with a veteran and a 2nd year net minder for a spot in the cage. It’s very possible that he’ll be reassigned to their ECHL affiliate Evansville IceMen to get the most playing time possible.
At 22-years old, the 6’2″ 200 lbs. goalie strikes a pretty imposing presence for offenders to get the puck by.
