The Manchester Monarchs have loaned goaltender Doug Carr to the American Hockey League‘s (AHL) Providence Bruins following Jeremy Smith‘s injury.
This will mark Carr’s third time in the AHL this season. He started the 2015-16 season on a professional try-out contract with the Albany Devils in the American Hockey League (AHL). After only three starts over a few months, he was released. In his three starts, Carr went 1-2-0 with a 2.34 goals-against average and .897 save percentage.
Following his time with Albany, Carr signed an ECHL deal with Manchester. Over 17 games with the Monarchs, the goaltender has a 8-5-4 record with 2.75 goals-against average and .917 save percentage.
Early in February Carr was called up to the Ontario Reign, but didn’t see any game action before being returned to the Monarchs.
The Hanover, Massachusetts native is in his third season of professional hockey. He split last season between the AHL‘s Adirondack Flames and the ECHL‘s Colorado Eagles, both affiliates of the Calgary Flames. He posted a 10-10-0 record with a .888 save percentage and 2.65 goals-against average over 22 games with the Eagles and a 4-3-0 record, .900 save percentage and 3.30 GAA over 13 games with the Flames.
Prior to turning pro, Carr spent four seasons at UMass Lowell from 2011-2014. In 86 games, Carr posted a 42-33-7 record with four shutouts, a 2.58 GAA and .915 save percentage. He ranks fourth all-time in GAA (2.58), sixth in saves (2,265), second in save percentage (.915), sixth in wins (42) and tied for sixth in shutouts (4) in River Hawks history. At UMass Lowell he split his time with now Winnipeg Jet goaltender Connor Hellebuyck.
Carr now gets the opportunity to play in the system for his hometown team. The P-Bruins are the AHL affiliate of the Boston Bruins.
The P-Bruins play their home games at the Dunkin’ Donuts Center in Providence, Rhode Island. The arena seats 11,075 for hockey contests.
