Seven-Ten Split, French Style

Today's goalie-licious post is 21-year-old Adrien Lemay from the ECHL Idaho Steelheads.

French-Canadian Lemay made his professional debut with the Florida Everblades last season, so featuring him on Going Five-Hole is extra nostalgic for miss Lady Byng.

If goaltending doesn't pan out, we bet he could one-up that little twig gymnast Shawn Johnson for the 2012 Olympics. Or maybe they should just date, their kids would be the human equivalent of Gumby.

(Big thanks to Ross for, yet again, making opening our email something we look forward to)

Before joining the Steelheads, the Quebec native appeared in 20 games for the Allen Americans of the CHL, with a couple of call-ups to the AHL Texas Stars. In net for the Americans, he registered a save percentage of 0.887 with a GAA of 3.31.

In his three games in Idaho, he's improved to a .921 SV% with 2.21 GAA.

And because everyone loves a goalie superstition, here's a video of Lemay in an Everblades sweater warming up against the (then-ECHL) Charlotte Checkers last season.


  1. I actually had the pleasure of hanging out with LeMay for a while at the recent Texas Stars casino night. I grew up playing hockey and being a forward never actually liked goalies very much--- they're like drummers in a band, loners but not in a cool way-- except having met LeMay, Richard Bachman and Tyler Beskorowany, the opposite's been true, all very easy-going, charismatic young guys. This doesn't mean the goalies I used to know weren't dorks or dicks; they were. One guy's name was J-Rob. I mean seriously J-Rob? C'mon man.

  2. I've got lots of good LeMay shots from his time in Allen... I'll post something of him today just for you! :)
