Bulldog Goalie Staying in State
HARTFORD, Conn. – Jeff Malcolm, the senior goalie who posted a shutout in the 2013 national championship game victory last April, is staying in Connecticut to continue his playing career. The Lethbridge, Alb., native just signed a contract with the American Hockey League's Hartford Wolfpack.
Malcolm, who attended the New York Rangers' development camp this summer, performed well enough to join the storied franchise.
The former Bulldog netminder, who celebrated his 24th birthday by winning the Frozen Four with 36 saves, went 20-6-2 with a 2.42 goals against last winter.
Malcolm tied the school record with six career shutouts, while he is top four in three other career categories: save percentage (.907, 3rd)), goals against (2.60, 4th) and wins (36, 3rd). He owns the second and fifth best Yale scoreless streaks.
On the way to helping Yale win its first national title on the ice, he earned numerous accolades, including the Frozen Four All-Tournament Team (scoreless streak of 85:08).
