The Hartford Wolf Pack announced Tuesday the signing of goaltender David LeNeveu to an American Hockey League contract.
This will be the second tour of duty with the Wolf Pack for LeNeveu, an 11th-year veteran out of Cornell University. LeNeveu saw 13 games of action with the Pack in 2007-08, going 8-3-2 with a 1.83 goals-against average, a .924 save percentage and one shutout.
LeNeveu, 30, has played in one AHL game this season for the Providence Bruins, a 1-0 loss at Syracuse Saturday in which LeNeveu made 20 saves. The 6-foot-1, 187-pound Fernie, B.C., native has also appeared in eight ECHL games with South Carolina, action in which he was 4-4-0 with a 1.64 GAA and a .940 save percentage. Three of LeNeveu’s four Stingray wins were by shutout, good for a tie for second among ECHL goaltenders in that category.
Originally selected in the second round (46th overall) of the 2002 NHL Draft by the Phoenix Coyotes, LeNeveu has played in 22 career NHL games with the Coyotes and Columbus Blue Jackets, going 5-9-2 with a 3.43 GAA and an .887 save percentage. In 308 career AHL contests with the Wolf Pack, Bruins, Springfield Falcons, Utah Grizzlies, San Antonio Rampage, Iowa Chops and Oklahoma City Barons, LeNeveu has a total slate of 121-150-26, with a 2.77 GAA, a .909 save percentage and nine shutouts. He played in the AHL All-Star Classic in 2004.
