Utah Grizzlies head coach and General Manager Tim Branham announced Wednesday that goaltender Sean Maguire has been assigned to the team by the Arizona Coyotes.
Maguire is expected to arrive in Rapid City this evening and will join the Grizzlies for practice Thursday before the team opens a three-game series against the Rush on Friday.
Maguire holds an 8-5 record in the ECHL with Wheeling and Fort Wayne this season and won 14 games with the Nailers last season. He was named ECHL Goaltender of the Month in January of 2017 after going 6-1-1 with a 1.79 goals-against average and a .938 save percentage in a month that included two shutouts.
He was traded by Pittsburgh to Arizona in December as part of a deal that sent goaltender Michael Leighton to the Penguins.
The 24 year old was originally drafted by Pittsburgh in the fourth round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He signed a two-year entry-level contract with Pittsburgh in April of 2016.
During the last two seasons, he went 2-1-1 in the AHL with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton with a 2.49 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage.
The 6-foot-2 native of British Columbia went 29-29-1 with a 2.58 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage in three years at Boston University.
