Andrew Loverock wasn’t drafted by an NHL team this summer, but after attending the Canadiens’ rookie development camp last July and the the rookie training camp that ended yesterday, he has impressed Rollie Melanson enough to be invited to the team’s main camp starting Friday.
The 6-foot-3 netminder posted 31 wins in 48 starts with the Mississauga Ice Dogs last season, but his goals-against average was 3.50 with a save percentage of .892.
“He’s looked good,” Melanson said, “but the real test is coming up when he goes up against the big boys. We want to see how he handles that. He’s a big kid and his record shows that he finds a way to win.”
