CHL team signs Harvey

The Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs of the Central Hockey League have signed former University of Saskatchewan Huskies goaltender Jeff Harvey.

Harvey, 27, joins the CHL after spending the past five seasons at the U of S, where he appeared in 130 games. In his Huskies career, Harvey won a Canada West championship in 2007, was named a Canada West first- or second-team all-star on three occasions and won two Adam Kryczka Memorial Trophies after posting the league's best goals-against average.

The 6-foot, 180-pound netminder also played four seasons in the Western Hockey League, enjoying a career-best final season with Everett in 2003-04. Harvey was named a WHL second-team all-star that season after compiling a 24-15-5 record with a 1.97 GAA and a .926 save-percentage as the Silvertips advanced to the WHL championship series. He went on to appear in 10 pro games with Rockford of the UHL in 2004-05 before enrolling at the U of S.
