Cousineau Staying In Ducks System

Former Saint John Sea Dogs goaltender Marco Cousineau will be staying in the Anaheim Ducks system for at least another season.

The Ducks announced Monday that Cousineau had signed a one-year deal (accepted qualifying offer) to remain with the club. Per team policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.

Cousineau had an eventful 2011-12 campaign, spending time in the Central Hockey League, American Hockey League, and East Coast Hockey League. In the AHL with the Syracuse Crunch he went 3-2-0 with a 3.32 goals against average and a 0.904 save percentage. In the ECHL with the Elmira Jackals he went 0-1-0 with a 4.08 GAA and a 0.879 SV%. Lastly, in the CHL with the Allen Americans he went 16-4-4 with a 2.53 GAA and a 0.918 SV%.

In 2010-11, Cousineau’s first pro season, he went 21-16-5 with a 3.23 GAA and a 0.898 SV% while playing with the Jackals.

The 22-year old was selected by the Ducks in the third round of the 2008 National Hockey League Draft.

The Sea Dogs acquired Cousineau during the 2009-2010 holiday trading period from the PEI Rocket. He helped the team reach the President’s Cup final for the first time in team history, a final that saw the SEa Dogs fall in six games to the Moncton Wildcats. He had a 15-5-0 record with Saint John in the second half of the regular season and produced a 2.36 GAA and a 0.914 SV%. He went 14-7 with a 2.80 GAA and a .911 SV% in the playoffs.
