With Andrew Perugini injured, the Stockton Thunder have been forced to turn to Bryan Pitton in goal. It's been a disaster. Here are Pitton's statistics, since replacing Perugini mid-way through Game 1 of the playoffs:
- 1-2-0, 5.00 GAA, .826 SV%
Bryan Pitton had decent, if unspectacular numbers in junior but hasn't taken a step forward this season; the adjustment to professional hockey has been brutal. Fortunately for him (and unfortunately for Andrew Perugini, since it probably reduces his chances of getting a contract), he has two seasons left on his three year NHL entry-level contract.
