ELMIRA, N.Y. - The Elmira Jackals announced today that they have acquired the ECHL rights to goaltender Scott Greenham (GREN-um) from the Bakersfield Condors in exchange for future considerations. He is currently attending training camp with the National Hockey League's Ottawa Senators.
"Scott is a big, athletic goaltender who has all of the tools to excel at the professional level. A goalie of his caliber gives us the opportunity to be successful every night and compete for a championship," said Jackals head coach Dwight Mullins.
Greenham, 26, is coming off of his first full season of professional hockey in 2012-13. He had an 11-19-3 record for the Condors with a goals-against average of 3.39 and a .908 save percentage. He finished the year with the 8th best save percentage among ECHL rookie goalies and third among rookies with 1,126 saves. Greenham also dressed in one game for the American Hockey League's Binghamton Senators and stopped each of the seven shots he saw in 11 minutes of work.
Greenham stands 6-2, weights 190 pounds, and hails from Ottawa, Ontario. He played collegiately at the University of Alaska-Fairbanks from 2008 to 2012. He finished his career with a 48-47-19 record, and entrenched himself in the Nanooks' record book. His 48 wins, career goals-against average of 2.42, career save percentage of .916, and 11 career shutouts are tops in school history.
Other individual awards Greenham garnered while at Fairbanks included; six Central Collegiate Hockey Association goalie of the week awards, two nominations to the CCHA all-tournament team, CCHA all-conference second team, and Fairbanks team MVP in 2011.
