September 2023 – Despite moving to the Flint Firebirds, Cranley’s performance has not changed. For the third consecutive season, he ended up with a less than .900% saves percentage (.884) and for the second consecutive season, with a higher than 3.8 goals against average (3.87). Cranley doesn’t seem to have yet figured out the OHL, and unfortunately for him, he will not have another season there to prove his worth since he is no longer eligible to play there. With a system full of talented goalies, it will be interesting to see where Cranley will play next season. Cedrick Blais-Turcotte 

 

July 2023 – Following three seasons with the Ottawa 67’s, Cranley was traded to the Flint Firebirds just before last season. Cranley’s performance remained the same leading to him playing very little in the playoffs with almost no success. As the years go by, Cranley’s path to the NHL becomes increasingly uncertain in a system full of talented goalies. Cedrick Blais-Turcotte

 

June 2022 – Cranley played 41 games with the Ottawa 67’s in the OHL in his DY+2, putting up a .873% save percentage. The one playoff game he featured in didn’t go any better as he held a .840% save percentage.  In March, the Blues signed him to a three-year ELC, showing their belief in him as a prospect. They will hope Cranley can put this behind him and continue to develop down the right path, likely in the ECHL. Gordon Munro

 

October 2020 – Cranley was drafted 163rd overall by the St. Louis Blues. He spent last season as the backup goaltender for the Ottawa 67’s, where he posted 18 wins, a 2.81 GAA and a .894 save percentage in 21 games. Lou Farrah
