The Syracuse Crunch have signed goaltender Allen York to a two-way AHL contract.
Syracuse will be looking for a more steadying presence between the pipes during the 2014/15 season after having a total of eight goaltenders on their books in the last campaign.
York himself will be hoping for some stability in what’s been a “journeyman” type career for the 25 year old thus far, no better encapsulated than last year.
He spent time with four AHL clubs (Charlotte, Texas, Rockford and Syracuse), two ECHL teams (Evansville and South Carolina) and represent Team Canada in the Spengler Cup held between Christmas and the New Year.
A sixth round pick by Columbus in 2007, York has only played a total of 40 career AHL games with a 21-12-3 record, 2.57 GAA and .907 save percentage with three shutouts.
One of those shutouts would come with the Syracuse Crunch in a loan spell this past February, as he turned aside 39 shots to blank the Hershey Bears and compiled a 1-2-1 record in four outings.
