In 60 games this year, Simpson posted a record of 20-31-5-7 with two shutouts to go along with a 3.33 goals against average and .909 save percentage.

In 2009-2010, the backstop was named the Everett Silvertips Scholastic Player of the Year. He also represented Team Canada at the 2010 Under-18 World Championship and won a Silver Medal with Team Pacific at the 2009 World U-17 Hockey Challenge.

Next Home Game: Tuesday, April 10 vs. Charlotte Checkers. Game time is set for 7:05 p.m. The final week of the 2011-12 regular season begins as the IceHogs host the Checkers for the first of two meetings in Week 28.
