London Knights claim Darveau off waivers
Former Halifax Mooseheads goaltender, Kevin Darveau, has joined the Ontario Hockey League’s London Knights.
The Knights claimed the 19-year-old goaltender off of waivers on Friday, Sept. 5.
Darveau boasted a record of 11-9 in 20 starts with the Mooseheads last season. Appearing in a total of 23 regular season games, the Ile-Bizard, Que. native finished with a goals against average of 3.30 and a save percentage of .895 per cent.
A graduate of the QMAAA’s College Esther-Blondin Phenix, Darveau was originally drafted by the Drummondville Voltigeurs in the seventh round of the 2011 QMJHL Entry Draft. The six-foot-one netminder spent his first junior year with the Granby Inouk of the QJAAAHL before having his QMJHL rights traded from the Voltigeurs to the Mooseheads last summer.
Darveau will be battling American Tyler Parsons (16) and former Peterborough Petes backstop Michael Giugovaz (19) for the number one job in London.
Despite Darveau’s age, 19, the former Moosehead will be entering into his final season of junior hockey due to a late birthday.
Darveau is expected to start tomorrow night when London visits the Sarnia Sting for a preseason clash.
