ST. JOHN’S, NL – The Newfoundland Growlers, ECHL affiliate of the Toronto Maple Leafs, announced today that goaltender Andrew D’Agostini has signed a Standard Player Contract (SPC) with the club and will join the team for their upcoming seven-game road trip.
D’Agostini, 28, is a Toronto, Ontario native who has played parts of six seasons in the ECHL with four different ECHL squads, including the Brampton Beast, Reading Royals, Toledo Walleye and Wheeling Nailers.
In 71 ECHL contests, the 5-10 netminder boasts a 31-24-7 record with a 3.24 goals against average and a .893 save percentage.
Last season in 2020-21, D’Agostini signed an AHL contract with his hometown Toronto Marlies and appeared in 14 games, compiling a 3.17 goals against average and a .890 save percentage.
D’Agostini has also appeared in one game this season with the Marlies.
He is also a big contributor to the hockey community off the ice. D’Agostini won the OHL’s Humanitarian of the Year Award in 2012 as a member of the Peterborough Petes, thanks in large part to the inception of his charity ‘Saves 4 CF’ in support of raising funds and finding a cure for Cystic Fibrosis.
He continued to grow ‘Saves 4 CF’ throughout his university career with the University of Guelph (2014 to 2016) and into his professional career. ‘Saves for CF’ exists to this day and has raised more than $40,000.
D’Agostini and the Growlers return to action on Friday, January 21 as they kick off a seven-game road trip in Independence, Missouri against the Kansas City Mavericks.
