Maxim Currie is the first goaltender to sign with the Badlands Sabres in their inaugural season.
The 20-year-old goalie from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada played last season for the Missoula Jr Bruins and went 14-12-0 while posting a 3.23 goals against average and .916 save percentage in 29 regular season games.
Currie also played in both playoffs games for the Jr. Bruins who eventually fell to the Frontier Division champs, the Sheridan Hawks, in a best of 3 series.
“We watched him play games during the final stretch of the regular season and playoffs and were very impressed. He has the ability to steal games single-handedly and gives his team a chance to win every night, it’s what you can ask for in a goalie” says Brendon Hodge, the head coach of the Badlands Sabres. “We’re excited to have Max between the pipes this coming season and what he can bring to our team’s success.”
