ST. JOHN’S, NL – Montreal Canadiens and St. John’s IceCaps General Manager Marc Bergevin announced today the IceCaps have recalled forwards Brandon MacLean and Mathieu Gagnon and goaltender Bryan Pitton from the Brampton Beast of the ECHL.
MacLean has collected 10 goals and 25 points in 27 games with the Beast. If he suits up with St. John’s, MacLean will join Eddie Pasquale, Julien Brouillette and Zach Redmond as the only players to play with the Winnipeg Jets and Canadiens versions of the IceCaps franchise.
Gagnon has registered two goals, four points and 15 penalty minutes in 15 games with the Beast this season. He was recalled to the IceCaps recently but did not see any action. The IceCaps signed the six-foot-two, 215-pound, Montreal native to an AHL contract in October.
Pitton played one game with IceCaps, a 5-2 loss to the Albany Devils in October. He has a 2-4-2 record with a 5.00 goals against average and a .836 save percentage in nine games with the Beast. The Brampton, ON native was drafted by the Edmonton Oilers in the 5th round (133rd overall) of the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
