Binnington named Ephesus/AHL Graduate of the Month

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. … The American Hockey League announced today that Jordan Binnington of the St. Louis Blues has been selected as the Ephesus/AHL Graduate of the Month for February.

Binnington was 10-1-0 with a 1.44 goals-against average, a .945 save percentage and four shutouts in 11 appearances during February, earning NHL Rookie of the Month honors and helping St. Louis climb into a playoff position in the National Hockey League’s Central Division.

Binnington earned a shutout in his first career NHL start on Jan. 7 and has gone 15-3-1 in 21 games with the Blues this season, with a 1.68 GAA and a .933 save percentage. In helping St. Louis tie a franchise record for team wins in a calendar month (12), Binnington became the second goaltender in the NHL’s modern era (since 1943-44) to post five shutouts through his first 18 career starts.

A third-round selection by St. Louis in the 2011 NHL Draft, Binnington played 164 games in the American Hockey League before breaking out with the Blues this winter. He was an AHL All-Star in 2018 and was one of the AHL’s top netminders with the San Antonio Rampage this season (11-4-0, 2.08, .927) before his recall on Jan. 5.
