ANCHORAGE, Alaska – The Alaska Aces have signed veteran right winger Wes Goldie to a one-year contract for the 2010-11 season.
The 31-year-old Goldie has scored an ECHL-best 175 goals while not missing a single game over the last four seasons with the Victoria Salmon Kings, including 44 last year, second only to Utah’s Ryan Kinasewich. He also finished second in the league with 48 (a North American career-high) in 2009, when he earned first team all-ECHL honors, and 41 in 2007, while leading the ECHL with 42 in 2008 (two better than younger brother, Ash). Goldie, a 6-1, 185-pounder orginially from London, Ontario, shared the league lead in shorthanded goals for three consecutive years beginning in 2007, scoring 19 over that span.
His 289 career ECHL goals rank eighth all-time in league history; 37 or more this season would move Goldie to second all-time. He scored one goal in his two AHL appearances, both with Bridgeport in 2004.
