Anaheim Ducks Sign St. Cloud Goalie Ryan Faragher

Matt Christians

Anaheim grabbed its second college prospect of the day.

St. Cloud State junior goalie Ryan Faragher has signed a free agent entry-level contract with the Anaheim Ducks.

Faragher came to St. Cloud with little fanfare and little expectations out of the North American Hockey League. As a freshman, Faragher was thrust into the starting role when St. Cloud's primary goalie Mike Lee went down with an injury. Faragher far exceeded expectations, posting a 2.77 GAA and .913 save percentage in his first year.

As a sophomore, Faragher became the primary starter for St. Cloud and helped lead the Huskies to their first ever WCHA regular season title and first ever Frozen Four appearance with career best numbers of 2.27 GAA and .914 save percentage. This past season, Faragher struggled with confidence for much of the second half of last year, and his numbers took a hit as a result--2.79 GAA, .905 save percentage--but was still named to the watch list for the Richter Award for college hockey's best goalie.

The loss doesn't leave St. Cloud completely bereft in goal. Freshman goalie Charlie Lindgren, USA Hockey's 2012-2013 junior goalie of the year, returns for a second campaign, as does redshirt sophomore Rasmus Reijola.
