Devils Sign Union Goaltender Keith Kinkaid




According to multiple reports on Twitter, Union College (ECAC) sophomore goaltender Keith Kinkaid is leaving his college team early to sign with the New Jersey Devils. It was first reported by Tim Wharnsby of the CBC and is confirmed by Union hockey scribe and ECAC guru Ken Schott, writer for the Schenectady Daily Gazette. As someone who follows the ECAC, if Schott says it, it is true, especially if it's about Union. Below the jump, I'll post Kinkaid's stats and give my thoughts on him as someone who has seen him play live.

Kinkaid had a 1.99 GAA this year in overall play, starting 37 games for the Dutchmen. He had a .920 save percentage and put up a 25-10-3 record, earning 3 shutouts. He led Union to first place in the ECAC this season as well as the Dutchmen's first ever Division I NCAA tournament appearance.

Outside of the statistics, I'll say this much from what I've seen of Kinkaid. He's a very impressive goaltender. He was one of the best goaltenders in the ECAC this season, probably only behind Allen York, who as a junior just signed with Columbus. I'm no scout that can tell you how Kinkaid will eventually do in the A or the NHL but from what I've seen of him live, he is a technically sound goaltender and I'm looking forward to having him in the Devils system. And I'm also crowing a little bit about what I said on March 10th in the NCAA Free Agent Watch Post.
