CBJ sign a UDFA goalie

CBJ sign a UDFA goalie

  • CBJ sign USHL star Matiss Kivy.  According to 1OB, he was pursued by NHL clubs after wrecking the USHL this past season with a 36-7-6 record, 1.85 GAA, .932 Save Percentage and 5 Shutouts.

    He's too old for the CHL and USHL and by signing with the CBJ he is ineligible for the NCAAs.  That means NHL, AHL, ECHL or Europe to continue his development.  He is clearly not ready for the NHL so...

    If he signed with the CBJ, have to assume they were offering him a good opportunity for one of the two AHL goalie spots. That means Joonas AND Forsberg cannot both be in Cleveland next season.  Either one ends up backing up Bobs, one ends up in Vegas or one gets traded.

  • I thought that ship had sailed when CMac was traded and Korpi became the back up. 

    So Bobs and Korpi here.  Forsberg and either Kivy or Thiessen in Cleveland and the other goes to the ECHL.

    With that said, I still think that we lose a goalie to Vegas.
