Former Herd goalie closing in on Kelly Cup

Former Halifax Mooseheads goaltender Jonathan Boutin is three wins away from winning the Kelly Cup.

Former Halifax Mooseheads goaltender Jonathan Boutin is three wins away from winning the Kelly Cup.

The 24-year-old has backstopped the South Carolina Stingrays to the East Coast Hockey League best-of-seven final against the Alaska Aces. He has a 2.64 goals-against average, a .909 save percentage and a 12-3 record in 15 starts.

The Stingrays and Aces are tied 1-1 in the series.

Boutin, a former third-round pick of the Tampa Bay Lightning, is with the Stingrays on a minor-league contract. His three-year NHL deal with the Lightning expired last summer.

He spent parts of three seasons with the Mooseheads from 2001 to 2004, starting 47 games in 2002-03.

Also vying for the Kelly Cup is Aces blueliner Derick Martin, who spent two seasons with the Saint Mary’s Huskies.
