ST. JOHN’S, NL (November 26, 2015) – Montreal Canadiens and St. John’s IceCaps General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today the IceCaps have recalled goaltender Eddie Pasquale from the Brampton Beast of the ECHL.

Pasquale has posted a 1-1-1 record with the IceCaps, including a 2.99 goals against average and a .914 save percentage. The 25-year-old Toronto native registered a 2-4-1 win-loss record and a shutout with the Beast, including a 3.05 goals against average and a .899 save percentage. He was signed in July to a one-year American Hockey League contract for the 2015-16 season.

Selected by the Atlanta Thrashers 117th overall in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Pasquale was traded by the Winnipeg Jets to the Washington Capitals last summer in an exchange of draft picks. However, he sat out the entire 2014-15 season recuperating from hip surgery.
