Newark, NJ – The New Jersey Devils today signed goaltender Keith Kinkaid to an entry-level contract.  The announcement was made by Devils’ President/CEO/General Manager Lou Lamoriello.  As per club policy, no further terms were disclosed.

Kinkaid, 21, joins the Devils’ organization after spending the past two seasons at Union College (ECAC).  He appeared in 38 games overall this past season, posting a 25-10-3 mark with three shutouts and a 1.99 goals-against average. 

The 6-3, 180-lb. netminder completed the season ranked first in ECAC conference games in wins (17), shutouts (2-tie), and goals-against average (1.90).  He helped lead the Dutchmen to their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance, making 26 saves in a 2-0 loss against eventual NCAA Champion Minnesota-Duluth, as well as their first Cleary Cup, marking a first-place finish in the ECAC. 

Kinkaid was named a 2010-11 AHCA First Team All-American, as well as First Team All-ECAC.  He was also the recipient of the Ken Dryden Award as the league’s top goaltender.  Born July 4, 1989, his collegiate totals show a 37-18-6 mark, with four shutouts, and 2.18 goals-against average in 63 appearances.  In 2009-10, he was named to the ECAC All-Rookie Team, while earning Third Team All-ECAC honors.

Prior to his collegiate career, Kinkaid spent the 2008-09 season with St. Louis (NAHL).  That year, he helped lead the Bandits to the Robertson Cup Championship, while being named most valuable player of the playoffs.  During his lone NAHL campaign, Kinkaid was also named the league’s MVP, goaltender of the year, and First Team All-Star.  In 2007-08, he played in 15 games with Des Moines (USHL).  The native of Farmingville, NY also played for the New York Bobcats of the Atlantic Junior Hockey League.  In September, Kinkaid will attend his first NHL training camp.
