MONTREAL - Canadiens GM Bob Gainey announced Friday that goaltender Yann Danis has been assigned to the Hamilton Bulldogs of the American Hockey League.
Danis, 24, has played in 32 games with the Bulldogs in 2005-06, registering a 14-14-2 record, a 2.88 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage. On February 1, 2006, Danis was named co-winner, along with netminder Wade Flaherty, of the Most Valuable Player Award of the American Hockey League All-Star Game, after stopping 12 of the 13 shots he faced in the second period.
With the Canadiens in 2005-06, Danis, a native of Lafontaine, Quebec, has played in six games, posting a 3-2-0 record, a 2.69 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage. On October 12, 2005 in Atlanta, Danis became the 16th goaltender in NHL history, and the third with the Canadiens, to register a shutout in his very first game in the National Hockey League.
