Phinney recalled by Manitoba
Goaltender made career-high 42 saves Sunday in his Fuel debutMar 14, 2018
INDIANAPOLIS – The American Hockey League’s Manitoba Moose announced Wednesday that they have recalled goaltender Colton Phinney from his loan to the ECHL’s Indy Fuel.
Phinney, 24, made a career-high 42 saves Sunday in a 7-4 Fuel victory over the league-leading Toledo Walleye, in what was his first appearance with Indy. In 22 games as a rookie split between the Fuel and the Jacksonville IceMen, the native of Chatham, N.J. has a 5-8-4 record with a 3.29 GAA and a .888 save percentage. The AHL call-up is Phinney’s second of the season, though the netminder did not see game action during his first stint with the Moose in late January.
A product of Princeton University, Phinney holds school records in saves (3,440), games played (110) and minutes (6411:41). Over his four year NCAA career, Phinney compiled a 27-74-9 record with two shutouts, a 3.10 goals against average, and a .912 save percentage.
The Fuel continue their push for the Kelly Cup Playoffs Friday with a visit U.S. Bank Arena Friday to take on the Cincinnati Cyclones, before returning to Indiana Farmers Coliseum Saturday to host Toledo.
