The Adirondack Phantoms just announced not too long ago that goalie Cal Heeter has been reassigned by the Philadelphia Flyers to the Trenton Titans of ECHL. Heeter is a 24 year old rookie out of Ohio State that has played 20 games with the Phantoms and has played pretty solid.
Throughout 20 games this season, Heeter’s record is 7-11-1, with a 2.97 GAA, and .906 save percentage. With those numbers so far, Cal Heeter has a bright future as a goalie in the NHL. While he was with the Phantoms, Heeter almost notched his first professional shutout on January 5th versus the Connecticut Whales but it wasn’t meant to be but Adirondack still came out with the victory.
With Heeter now going to Trenton, the Phantoms have two veteran goalies on their roster. They currently have Scott Munroe and Brian Boucher; both players are in their thirties. For Heeter, I think it is great for him to go back to Trenton because the ECHL has a lot of younger players that match his skill set. Also he won’t be so overwhelmed like he was in the AHL which has NHL talent and experience on the ice. But don’t get me wrong for a rookie Heeter held his own in Adirondack and I would not be surprised to see him playing with the Flyers within the next two years.
Tomorrow night at 7:05 pm, the Titans are home as they take on the Las Vegas Wranglers. This could possibly be Heeter’s first action with Trenton after just being reassigned today.
