Prince Albert Raiders goaltender Ian Scott is a Calder Cup champion.
The American Hockey League’s Toronto Marlies defeated the Texas Stars in game seven of the Calder Cup final Thursday night, capturing the first professional hockey title for a Toronto team since the Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup in 1967.
Scott, who was selected by the Leafs in the fourth round of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, signed an amateur tryout agreement with the organization’s AHL affiliate shortly after the Raiders’ season came to an end. The Calgary native started one game at the end of the regular season, a 4-3 victory over Belleville, before serving as a third-string goalie throughout the playoff run, making one appearance on the bench as a backup.
Being a part of the championship run was something he could barely describe.
“Pretty surreal I’d say. Just such a great experience,” Scott said.
