ECHL: Norfolk Admirals Sign Goaltender to Amateur Tryout Contract

The Norfolk Admirals announced they have signed Miami University (Ohio) goaltender Logan Neaton ahead of game two of the Kelly Cup North Division semi-final. The Brighton, MI native played for three years at Miami University (Ohio). This comes after the Winnipeg Jets reassigned goaltender Oskari Salminen to the Manitoba Moose of the American Hockey League Thursday night. Salminen got the start for the Admirals in game one of the series on Wednesday Night, stopping 33 of 35 shots in the Game 1 win against the Trois-Rivieres Lions.

Prior to his move to Miami, Neaton played in 47 games for the Prince George Spruce Kings during the 2018-19 season. He went 32-8-5, posting a 1.92 GAA and a .914 SV% with five shutouts during the regular season. In the postseason for the Spruce Kings, Neaton went 16-1-0 in 17 games, once again putting up incredible numbers of 1.46 GAA and a .940 SV% with two shutouts. Neaton had the best GAA out of all goalies in the BCHL that year. He also won the BCHL championship and was named BCHL Second Team All-Star.

From there, he committed to UMass-Lowell but would not see much playing time in his freshman and sophomore seasons. Overall between UMass-Lowell and Miami University (Ohio), Neaton played in 45 games with a 3.57 GAA and a .891 SV%.

Neaton will serve as the backup tonight for the Admirals, as Yaniv Perets will get the start for Norfolk. In 34 games during the regular season, Perets went 18-11-3 with a 2.99 GAA, .889SV%, and two shutouts; he also made one appearance in relief with the Carolina Hurricanes, stopping the only shot he saw.
