It wasn’t so long ago that Ben Scrivens was suiting up for Canada at the Olympic Games, but his playing career is now officially over. Scrivens has taken a team manager role at the University of Denver where he will also pursue a masters degree. A veteran of 144 NHL games, Scrivens had played in the KHL the last two seasons and took home a bronze medal at the most recent Olympics.
Scrivens finished an incredible collegiate career at Cornell University in 2010, when he was named a Hobey Baker finalist and ECAC Goaltender of the Year. Though his NHL career wouldn’t provide much of an opportunity to start on a regular basis, he did finish with a perfectly reasonable .905 save percentage. Still, there’s always been more to Scrivens than just his on-ice play and he’ll take that outlook to Denver to try and help the Pioneers this season.
