Veteran Goalie Pitton Returns from AHL
BRAMPTON, ONTARIO -The Brampton Beast, ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Montreal Canadiens, announce today that experienced netminder Bryan Pitton is returning from his stint with the St. John’s IceCaps.
Pitton, a 28-year-old local product, did not appear a game during this call up. He did serve as the backup to IceCaps starting goaltender Charlie Lindgren.
In nine appearances in the crease for the Beast, Pitton has accumulated a 2-4-2 record, a 0.836 save percentage and a 5.00 GAA. He is expected to rejoin the team in time for their trio of games this upcoming weekend.
As a result of this transaction, goaltender Brandon Billie has been released from his contract. He served as Andrew D’Agostini’s backup for last three games of the club’s seven game road trip.
