Wolves bring back goalie Climie


The Chicago Wolves have re-signed their record-setting goaltender, Matt Climie.

Climie finished tied for ninth in the American Hockey League last season with 24 victories and established career-best marks with a 2.42 goals-against average and a .921 save percentage in 53 games with Chicago. He posted a 24-25-3 mark last year and his goals-against average shared 14th in the league while his save percentage tied for ninth in the circuit.

The 30-year-old goaltender also played the fourth-most minutes in the AHL last season with 3,094 and faced the fourth-most shots in the league at 1,577.

The Leduc, Alberta, native also rewrote Chicago's goaltender record book last year as he set two franchise records and tied two others. Climie set a club record with five road shutouts last year and established a consecutive scoreless streak by not allowing a goal for 173 minutes, 57 seconds. He also tied Wendell Young's team mark of six shutouts in a single season and Michael Garnett's 13-straight starts mark.
