Fitzpatrick Signs with Wolves


April 18, 2017

The Chicago Wolves announced Tuesday that goaltender Evan Fitzpatrick has signed an amateur tryout contract with the club.

The 19-year-old recently concluded his third season in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League backstopping the Sherbrooke Phoenix. In 49 games, Fitzpatrick posted a 16-27-3 record as well as a .899 save percentage and 3.46 goals-against average. The 6-foot-3, 206-pound goalkeeper ranked second in the QMJHL in saves (1,411) and shots faced (1,569).

On March 26, 2017, Fitzpatrick agreed to terms on a three-year entry-level contract with the St. Louis Blues. The Blues drafted the St. John’s, Newfoundland, native in the second round, 59th overall, of the 2016 NHL Draft. He was the fourth goaltender selected in that draft.

Fitzpatrick will travel with the Wolves to Charlotte for the 2017 Calder Cup Central Division Semifinals against the Checkers. As the higher seed, Chicago elected to open with the two first games on the road before returning to Allstate Arena for the remainder of the best-of-five series.

The opening round of the postseason kicks off on Thursday (April 20) at Bojangles’ Coliseum. Game time is 6 p.m., and the contest will be streamed on AHLLive.com. The Wolves’ first postseason home contest will be Game 3 at 2 p.m on Sunday, April 23. For a complete first-round schedule or home-game tickets, visit ChicagoWolves.com.
