GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. – The Detroit Red Wings have reassigned goaltender Jake Paterson to the ECHL’s Toledo Walleye from the Grand Rapids Griffins.

In his second career AHL start, Paterson recorded 39 saves in Grand Rapids’ 2-0 loss at San Antonio last Sunday. 

In two games for the Griffins this season, Paterson shows a 3.11 goals against average, a 0.928 save percentage and a 0-2-0 record.

Detroit’s second choice (80th overall) in the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Paterson has appeared in 26 games with the Walleye during his first professional season. The Mississauga, Ontario, native ranks eighth among ECHL goaltenders in goals against average (2.21) and is tied for fifth in save percentage (0.925) while showing a 14-9-1-1 record.

Paterson, 21, split time with three teams during the 2014-15 season. In 24 games with the Ontario Hockey League’s Saginaw Spirit, he accumulated a 12-11-1 record, a 3.48 GAA, and a 0.905 save percentage before being traded to the Kitchener Rangers. In 26 games with the Rangers, he amassed a 14-10-2 record along with a 2.37 GAA and a 0.929 save percentage.
