Observations

June 2019 – Binnington led the St. Louis Blues to their first Stanley Cup Championship in franchise history. The rookie goaltender stuck with it through the highs and lows of a playoff run like he had been in the league for a decade. After giving up five goals in Game six, Binnington rebounded and shut the Bruins down for 58 minutes before giving up a meaningless late goal. He finished the playoffs with a 16-10 record and recorded a .914 save percentage. Despite playing just 32 regular season games, one would have to imagine that Binnington will receive serious consideration as a Calder candidate. Sam Stern

 

May 2019 – To say that Binnington has had a phenomenal rookie season would be an understatement. The 25 year-old rookie netminder went from looking like AHL fodder to leading the St. Louis Blues from the basement of the league to the Stanley Cup Finals. He finished the regular season 24-5-1 with a .927 save percentage. Now in the playoffs he has continued to be the backbone of this Blues team going 12-7 over 19 games with a .914 save percentage. Binnington is a legitimate contender for Rookie of the Year. Sam Stern

June 2018 – What started out as a less than ideal situation, Binnington had one hell of a season. The Blues had to send Binnington to the Providence Bruins due to a lack of room elsewhere in the AHL and the 24 year old made the most of it. The  goalie prospect dressed for 28 games and put up a .926 save percentage. The Blues don’t have an immediate need for one of their goalie prospects to take up the reigns but Binnington continues to prove to be more then capable to be reliable between the posts. Josh Epstein

September 2017 – Binnington played in 32 games for the Chicago Wolves, posting a record of 16-7-8 with a .911 sv% and a GAA of 2.71. On July 24, 2017, Binnington signed a one year extension.   Binnington’s path to the NHL with St. Louis will be difficult, as Ville Husso seems to have moved ahead of Binnington in the Blues depth chart.  In the near term Binnington is unlikely to be making an NHL impact; but in the longer term he could become a viable backup for an NHL team.  One caveat is Binnington is the kind of goalie prospect who can quickly move from irrelevant to hot prospect with a single impressive AHL season. Doug Abrams

July 2016 – Binnington and the Blues have come to terms on a deal that will keep the pending RFA in the fold for another year. It’s shaping up to be quite the battle for playing time in Chicago of the AHL with Binnington, Husso and Copley all looking to claim the crease as theirs. Brad Phillips

June 2016 – For the second consecutive year, Binnington split goaltending duties for the Chicago Wolves, this time with Pheonix Copley. He saw slightly more action than his counterpart playing in 41 games amassing a 17-18-5 record with a 2.85 GAA, 0.907 SVS and a single shutout. All of these numbers were down from the previous year, a reflection of the fact that the Wolves were an inferior team to the 2014-15 incarnation. The highlight of the year for Binnington was getting his first, albeit brief, NHL action playing 13 minutes, allowing one goal on four shots. Sporting good size and excellent reflexes, he’s in a good situation in that the Blues don’t have a true #1 goalie at the big league level. With him, Husso and Copley all in the pipeline, the battle over who will emerge should prove to be fierce in the coming years. Brad Phillips

June 2014 – Binnington spent the majority of his first pro season in the ECHL due to Jake Allen being the dominant figure in the AHL crease for the St. Louis organization. He performed well in Kalamazoo, earning a 23-13-3 record with a .922 save percentage. With Allen ready to make the jump to the NHL, look for Binnington to spend all of next year in the AHL. Eric Daoust

June 2013 – Binnington finished the season with career-highs in games played (50), wins (32), GAA (2.17) and save percentage (.932). His efforts were recognized when he was named OHL goaltender of the year. He turns 20 in July so there is still going to be a couple years of development ahead but he is emerging as a potential star goaltender. Eric Daoust

January 2013 – Binnington has gathered a nice plethora of awards early on in his career. He was named the CHL Memorial Cup Most Outstanding Goaltender when he backstopped his Owen Sound Attack to a 2010 OHL Championship. Binnington recently represented Canada at the 2013 WJHC and played well in relief of Malcolm Subban on the big stage.  He is currently in the middle of a strong OHL campaign where he leads all puck stoppers in save percentage (.934%) and should gain valuable experience as his strong Owen Sound Attack team looks to go deep into the playoffs.  Brendan Ross
