Muskegon signs pair of goaltenders

The Muskegon Fury signed two goaltenders today out of the college ranks.

Ryan Grinnell and Kyle McNulty inked contracts to play in Muskegon this fall.

Grinnell just completed his collegiate eligibilty at the University of Toronto, while McNulty finished his four years at Clarkson University.

The 31-year-old Grinnell went 18-9-1 with a 2.20 goals-against average, a .921 save percentage and two shutouts last year.

“Ryan is a goaltender who has really come on later in his overall career," Fury head coach Bruce Ramsay said. "Last season, he experienced an absolutely outstanding year which was made even more impressive in that he accomplished it against some of the top-notch major junior goaltenders."

McNulty, 25, saw action in five games last year going 1-2-0 with a 3.85 GAA and .870 SV %. It was in his junior year of 2005-06, however, when he really thrived, compiling a 2.86 GAA in 15 outings alongside a 7-8-0 mark.

“Kyle is coming to us from a very strong Division I program where he was an integral part of their goaltending position for four solid years," said Ramsay. "He possesses an outstanding work ethic and we know he will come to camp well-prepared as he has been on the ice all summer long to get ready for his first pro season."

The Fury now has a dozen players signed for this upcoming season.
