Legionnaires Land All-Star Goalie

january 7, 2015

The Sarnia Legionnaires have obtained all-star goalie Andrew Masters in a trade with the St. Marys Lincolns.

Masters, who was picked up in a straight cash deal, was the only Linc selected to play in the league's all-star game last month.

The 19-year-old, who stands 6'1 and weighs 205 pounds, is expected to be Sarnia's No. 1 puckstopper, replacing Hunter Johnson.

Rose said the team hopes to find Johnson a new team by the end of the week. In fact, four of five clubs have made inquiries about Johnson, he said.

The bench boss noted Masters had a save percentage above .900, despite playing for a last place team.

"Andrew is a big, strong kid. He's an excellent goaltender, he stops a lot of pucks, Rose said.

Masters said, I'm thrilled to come here. I know the Legionnaires are definitely capable of going all the way. They have a high octane offense.

A native of Kitchener, Masters played 'AAA' midget in his hometown three years ago, picking up two shutouts while posting a .906 save percentage.

Playing for the Paris Jr. 'C' Mounties in the fall of 2012, he had an astonishing six shutouts in 13 games. His goals-against-average was a sparkling 1.71 and his save percentage an eye-popping .942.

Promoted to the Lincs, Masters lifted that struggling hockey club into the Jr. 'B' playoffs last spring by making an average of 40 saves a game.
