The Rockford IceHogs today announced that goaltender Jaxson Stauber has signed an amateur tryout agreement (ATO) with the club.
On March 23, the Chicago Blackhawks announced that Stauber had agreed to terms on a two-year entry-level contract beginning next season and running through the 2023-24 season ($883,750 salary cap hit).
Stauber recently completed his junior year at Providence College where he posted a 21-14-2 record with a 2.10 goals against average, .921 save percentage and four shutouts in 37 games. Last year, his first with the Friars, Stauber was named a Mike Richter Award Finalist after recording a 11-7-5 mark with a 2.24 GAA, .916 SV% and four shutouts in 23 appearances.
Prior to joining Providence, the Plymouth, Minnesota native appeared in one game with Minnesota State during his freshman season. He posted a 1.00 GAA and .933 save percentage in that lone appearance prior to rejoining the Sioux Falls Stampede where he had spent the prior two seasons. He paced USHL goaltenders with a .918 SV% in 2019-20. He helped lead the club to a Clark Cup title with a 1.46 GAA and .941 save percentage in 12 playoff games (11-1) during the 2018-19 campaign. He was also named the Clark Cup MVP that postseason.
His father, Robb Stauber, played five seasons in the National Hockey League with the Los Angeles Kings and Buffalo Sabres and coached the U.S. Women's National Team to a gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea.
