Veteran goalie in Storr for Falcons

The Springfield Falcons on Wednesday announced that the club has signed goaltender Jamie Storr. The veteran of 219 NHL games will report to the club for the beginning of the team’s training camp.

Storr, who played parts of 10 seasons with the Los Angeles Kings (1994-2003) and Carolina Hurricanes (2003-04), played 13 AHL games with Lowell last season.

“Storr brings us a goaltender with a great deal of NHL experience which will be an important factor to the team’s success on the ice this season,” said Falcons President and General Manager Bruce Landon.

Storr was selected with the seventh overall pick in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft, becoming the Kings’ highest-drafted goaltender in team history. He owns the distinction of being named to two NHL All-Rookie Teams, for both the 1997-98 and 1998-99 seasons.

During Storr’s junior career, he was named the Ontario Hockey League’s Goaltender of the Year for 1993-94 and backstopped Team Canada to gold medals at the World Junior Championships in 1994 and 1995.
