Buitenhuis Agrees To Terms On AHL Contract

The Bridgeport Sound Tigers, proud AHL affiliate of the New York Islanders, announced Saturday that goaltender Evan Buitenhuis has agreed to terms on an American Hockey League contract. In addition, he has been loaned to the Worcester Railers (ECHL).

Buitenhuis, 25, is in his first professional season out of Hamilton College. He has made six appearances with the Railers this season, posting a 2.73 goals-against-average and .918 save percentage. He made 33 saves in his pro debut on Oct. 26 and guided the Railers to a 4-3 win at Manchester.

A native of Burlington, Ont., Buitenhuis played each of the last four seasons at Hamilton College and went 37-17-12 in 68 career games, with a 1.67 goals-against-average and .944 save percentage. In addition, the 6’2, 185-pound goalie led all Division III netminders in goals-against-average (1.28) and save percentage (.954) during his senior season, both program records. He received the school’s 2018 Jack B. Riffle Award as the top male athlete in Hamilton’s senior class.
