Backstop Reichmuth signs with Muskegon

Goaltender Isaac Reichmuth has signed with the Muskegon Fury.

Reichmuth played his college hockey at Minnesota-Duluth and last season played in the ECHL with the Alaska Aces, going 13-5-4 with a 2.48 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage. His GAA ranked fifth best in the ECHL.

“We are enthused with the acquisition of Isaac," Fury head coach Bruce Ramsay said. "He has been an outstanding four-year starting goaltender at the Division I level for a nationally-recognized, highly-regarded university which also made it to the Frozen Four during his career there. He continued his growth as a solid goaltender in his rookie season last year in the ECHL with Alaska.

"Isaac also brings a good pedigree to us. He is a solid goaltender looking to further his pro career in Muskegon and, perhaps, some day, the AHL. He comes to us highly-recommended and ready to take-on the responsibility of being the number one goalie.”

Reichmuth’s father, Craig, was a standout in the 1970s and early 1980s in the NHL with the Detroit Red Wings' organization and later in the old World Hockey Association that competed with the NHL during that particular era. The elder Reichmuth also played in the CHL and the AHL during his pro playing career.

Muskegon now has 20 players under contract for this upcoming season.
