9th year undrafted goaltender Scott Munroe(33) returned to North American hockey for a second time after tending net for Vaxjo Lakers of the SHL last season. He also spent an earlier year overseas in the KHL with Neftekhimik Nizhnekamsk.
Although he put up pretty excellent numbers in Sweden (2.05 GAA, .913 SV% in 36 games) he was cut loose.
He decided to come back to this side of the pond signing a one-year, two-way deal with Springfield Falcons.
The 6’2″ 194 lbs. backstop was immediately recalled and started his first AHL game in about a year and a half, winning his second straight of 2014/2015 in two different leagues.
His last stint was his second go-round with Adirondack (Philadelphia) Phantoms.
He’s had three NHL contracts and was invited to Columbus Blue Jackets’ training camp but never played an official big league game.
When he finally decides to hang up the skates, he’d be a great goaltending coach for a team.
