The Hartford Wolf Pack made a move today to hopefully address some of their goaltending isues, recalled Jeff Malcolm from the ECHL’s Greenville Road Warriors and demoting Scott Stajcer to the ECHL. Malcolm has been one of the top goalies in the ECHL, posting a 1.96 GAA and a .940 SV%. Meanwhile, Stajcer has been struggling with Hartford, putting up a 2.27 GAA and a .904 SV%.

In response to Cam Talbot being recalled to the Rangers and Martin Biron deciding his future since demotion, the Hartford Wolfpack have promoted goalie Jeff Malcolm from the ECHL’s Greenville Road Warriors. Malcolm was part of the first round of cuts from Rangers camp in September, and then was cut from Hartford two weeks later.
The ECHL has not started their season yet, so there are no stats for Malcolm.
As a hockey fan, August is by far the worst month of the year. Free agency, the major trades, the Draft, they have all long passed by and the dog days of summer have set in. Traverse City is still a few weeks away. The major headlines are the remaining few contract situations (Stepan and to some extent, Lundqvist), but the season still seems worlds away.
In the life of a hockey blogger, August represents dredging the deepest recesses of your brain for something to write about.

Wolfpack GM Jim Schoenfeld added to the goalie depth of the organization by signing Yale goalie Jeff Malcolm to an AHL deal. Malcolm was a key piece for Yale as they made their Cinderella run to the NCAA Championship. In 30 games this past season, Malcom went 20-6-2 with a 2.24 GAA and a .919 SV%. The 6’2, 185-lb goalie will compete with Cam Talbot, Jason Missiaen, and Scott Stajcer for the goalie spots in the AHL and ECHL.
