The South Carolina Stingrays and Head Coach and Director of Hockey Operations Spencer Carberyannounced today that goaltender David LeNeveu has been loaned to the team's American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate, the Providence Bruins.
LeNeveu, 30, dressed in eight games with the Stingrays earning a 4-4-0 record, 1.64 goals-against average, .940 save percentage and is tied for second in the ECHL with three shutouts. The Fernie, British Columbia, native earns his second call-up to the Bruins this season, but has not appeared in a contest. Over a 10-year North American professional career, LeNeveu skated in 307 American Hockey League games with the Utah Grizzlies, Springfield Falcons, San Antonio Rampage, Hartford Wolf Pack, Iowa Chops and Oklahoma City Barons picking up a 121-149-26 record with a 2.78 goals-against average and .909 save percentage. Last season, LeNeveu battled in 30 games with Linz EHC in Austria.
A second-round selection (46th overall) by the Phoenix Coyotes in 2002 National Hockey League Entry Draft, LeNeveu competed in 22 NHL contests with the Phoenix Coyotes and Columbus Blue Jackets registering a 5-9-2 record with a 3.43 goals-against average and .877 save percentage. He made his NHL debut with the Coyotes on October 6, 2005 suffering a 3-2 loss against the Los Angeles Kings and later recorded his first NHL win on October 25 in a 5-4 overtime decision over the St. Louis Blues in Phoenix.
