BINGHAMTON (WBNG) — The Binghamton Devils have agreed to terms with goalie Evan Cormier on an AHL contract. Cormier played four games for the B-Devils on an Amateur Tryout Contract before signing the deal on Friday. The 21-year-old goaltender was a fourth-round pick in 2016 and went unsigned by the New Jersey Devils. He was playing hockey at the University of Guelph this season before the B-Devils came knocking, desperate for goalies.
Cormier was signed to an ATO on December 29 and has earned an official AHL deal since joining the team. On Wednesday, Cormier shutout the Syracuse Crunch, stopping all 35 shots he faced. He now has back-to-back victories, the first two of his professional career.
“It’s amazing,” Cormier told Binghamton Devils play-by-play announcer Rob Lippolis on Friday. “The guys were really welcoming when I first got here and I’m just happy to be back and with the Devils Organization.”
The Binghamton Devils are back on the ice Friday night at Lehigh Valley. Puck drops at 7:05 p.m.
