Ducks Sign Goaltender Marco Cousineau to Three-Year Entry-Level Contract

ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed goaltender Marco Cousineau to a three-year entry-level contract.

Cousineau, 20 (11/9/89), has appeared in 28 contests for Prince Edward Island (PEI) and Saint John of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) in 2009-10, going 12-15-0 with a 3.17 goals-against average (GAA) and .906 save percentage (SV%). He was acquired by Saint John on Dec. 30 and has appeared in three contests with the club since. Cousineau recorded his first shutout of the season in a 4-0 PEI victory over Saint John on Oct. 13, stopping all 25 shots he faced.

Selected by Anaheim in the third round (83rd overall) of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Cousineau split his third QMJHL season in 2008-09 with Baie-Comeau and Drummondville, posting a combined 3.24 GAA and 21-29-0 record. Following his acquisition by Drummondville on Jan. 7, he lowered his GAA to 2.35 en route to a QMJHL President’s Cup title. His 2.44 GAA in the playoffs ranked third among goaltenders. Cousineau helped the Voltiguers advance to within one game of the Memorial Cup final, falling to eventual champion Windsor by a score of 3-2 in overtime.

A native of St. Lazare, Quebec, Cousineau led the QMJHL in wins and finished fourth among league goaltenders in GAA in 2007-08. His four shutouts that season were a career high. Following the regular season, the 6-0, 200-pound netminder was named to the QMJHL Second-Team All-Star squad. In four QMJHL seasons, Cousineau has posted a 71-75-0 record with a 3.18 GAA and .896 SV%.
