Goaltender Jacob Ingham Recalled to Ontario
The Ontario Reign announced the recall of goaltender Jacob Ingham Saturday from the ECHL's Greenville Swamp Rabbits.
Ingham, 23, has appeared in 14 games for Greenville this season, posting a record of 11-2-0 with a goals-against average of 2.64 and a 0.920 save percentage. His win total leads the league, while his save percentage ranks fifth in the ECHL.
A native of Barrie, Ont., Ingham has appeared in six AHL games for the Reign in his career while he was previously on an entry-level contract with the LA Kings.
With Greenville, Ingham has compiled a 24-15-3 record from 43 games over three seasons with a 2.82 goals-against average, a .908 save percentage and three shutouts.
A former sixth-round NHL Draft selection by the Kings in 2018, Ingham had a standout 2019-20 season with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), where he posted a 33-8-4 record, 2.96 goals-against-average, .917 save percentage and two shutouts in 46 appearances. His 33 wins led the OHL that year, while his save percentage ranked third and his goals-against-average ranked fifth among starting goaltenders.
The 6-foot-5, 205-pound goaltender also spent three seasons with the OHL’s Mississauga Steelheads from 2016-19. In 177 career OHL regular-season appearances, Ingham registered a 93-61-9 record, 3.23 goals-against-average, .899 save percentage and five shutouts.
