AVALANCHE REASSIGN GOALTENDER SPENCER MARTIN
SAN ANTONIO (Dec. 24, 2016) – The Colorado Avalanche announced yesterday evening that goaltender Spencer Martin was reassigned to the San Antonio Rampage (AHL).
Martin, 21, returns to San Antonio after receiving his third call-up of the season, backing up former Rampage netminder Calvin Pickard in last night’s 2-1 victory over the Chicago Blackhawks. He has appeared in 19 games with San Antonio this season, recording an 11-7-0-0 record, .918 save percentage and 2.46 goals-against average. The second-year pro holds the fifth-best rookie goals-against average and has the second most wins by a rookie goaltender this season. Martin played in 18 games for the Rampage last season, registering a .921 save percentage, 2.65 goals-against average, and CCM/AHL Player of the Week honors in late March.
San Antonio will host the Texas Stars Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the AT&T Center. Rampage games can be heard on Ticket 760 and SARampage.com. Individual and season tickets are available and can be purchased by calling a Rampage representative at 210-444-5554 or online at SARampage.com. The 2016-17 season is presented by Wells Fargo.
