Summerhays Signs PTO with Monsters

The former Notre Dame standout has been playing between the pipes in the ECHL.

UPDATE: Monsters released Summerhays from his PTO on 01/16/2017

On January 14th, 2017, the Monsters inked former Notre Dame standout, Steven Summerhays, to a PTO contract. This signing came on the heels of an emergency of Forsberg which left the Monsters with one netminder, Thiessen. Forsberg was sent back to the Monsters the next day.

Summerhays started the 2016-17 season with the Tulsa Oilers of the ECHL. He was traded on December 12, 2016, alongside forward Ben Murphy for the Norfolk Admirals' Sam Noreau and the rights to forward Alexandre Ranger. Summerhays had a record of 1-2 with the Norfolk Admirals.

Pre-Monsters Career

Summerhays spent his collegiate years calling the University of Notre Dame home. Over 106 games, he started in 99 and posted a record of 57-38-5.

Summerhays ranks in the top five of multiple categories for Notre Dame.

1st All-Time Shutouts 13
2nd Winning Percentage 0.595
2nd All-Time Wins 57
2nd All-Time Goals Against Average 2.19

Following the end of his collegiate career, Summerhays signed with the Fort Wayne Komets for the rest of the 2013-14 season. While with the Komets, Summerhays had a 1.92 gaa, .922 save percentage, and won both games he played.

In August of 2014, Summerhays signed with his hometown team, the Alaska Aces. However, during a rousing game of shinny hockey, Summerhays injured his rotator cuff while making an incredible glove save. The injury would sideline him for the entire 2014-15 season.

Summerhays would play 14 games for the Aces before being traded to the Missouri Mavericks in February of 2016.
