Brahmas add rookie goaltender

Wayne Savage set to join training camp roster

According to published reports, University of Prince Edward Island (AUS) goaltender Wayne Savage has agreed to sign with the Texas Brahmas for the 2010-11 season. Savage, 23, was the Panthers’ 2009-10 team MVP, posting a record of 12-7 with a 3.23 GAA through the regular season.

He was the Panthers’ starting goaltender in the playoffs, where he went 0-2 with a 2.57 GAA in an opening-round defeat to the St. F.X. X-Men.

Savage's coach at UPEI is former Texas Brahmas assistant coach Forbes MacPherson.

The 6’, 196 pound native of St. Thomas, Ontario played three seasons with the Toronto St. Michael’s Majors (OHL) where his cumulative record was 40-60-12. He began the 2007-08 season with the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors (OHL), but after a 1-3 start, he went to the Newmarket Hurricanes (OPJHL) where he went 12-1-1 with a 1.68 GAA and a .945 save percentage.
