Saginaw adds to net depth with Paterson

The Saginaw Spirit announced the signing today of goalie Jake Paterson, the 32nd overall pick in the 2010 OHL Priority Selection.

The Mississauga, Ont., native posted 15 shutouts and allowed only 70 goals in 50 games last season with the Minor Midget Toronto Marlboros. During the 2010 OHL Cup, he posted a 1.56 goals-against average in six games.

Paterson, who comes in at 6-feet-1 and 175 pounds, will wear No. 57 for the Spirit.

“Jake has great character, attitude and work ethic,” stated Spirit goaltending coach Randy Wilson following Paterson’s selection in May's draft. "He is your atypical butterfly goalie with decent size and good net discipline. He maintains his focus throughout the game to shutdown the opponent."
