Ducks Sign Goaltender David McKee
ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed goaltender David McKee to a two-year entry-level contract. Per club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.

“Over the past two seasons, David McKee has proven to be one of the premier players at the collegiate level,” said Mighty Ducks Executive Vice President and General Manager Brian Burke. “He is a great addition to the core of young talented players within our organization.”

McKee, 22 (6/5/83), played three seasons with Cornell University of the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC), where he was a Hobey Baker Finalist and the Ivy League Player of the Year in 2005. This season, he earned a 22-9-4 record with a 2.08 goals-against-average (GAA) and .910 save percentage (SV%), helping the Big Red to the 2006 Men’s Frozen Four Tournament. Cornell fell to Wisconsin in the second round, despite McKee’s career-high 59 saves in the 1-0 game (3 OT).

A 6-1, 185-pound netminder, McKee earned a career record of 65-24-13 at Cornell with a .926 SV% , 1.71 GAA and 18 shutouts. His 102 consecutive starts shattered the former school record of 56 by a goalie. McKee’s 18 career shutouts also set a Cornell mark, breaking the school record held by NHL Hall of Famer Ken Dryden and the ECAC record held by Dryden and three others.

McKee helped Cornell win the ECAC title in 2004-05, earning a 27-5-3 record. Over the final 21 games of the season, he allowed a total of just 20 goals, earning an 18-2-1 record with a 0.93 GAA and .962 SV%. Cornell posted a 19-game unbeaten streak that was the nation's longest of the season, as McKee recorded 10 shutouts to surpass former Big Red goalkeeper David LeNeveu for the school and ECAC single-season mark. McKee’s GAA (1.24) and SV% (.947) for the season were third and fourth-best respectively in NCAA history.

The Irving, Texas, native was named ECAC Co-Rookie of the Year, honorable mention All-ECAC and second team All-Ivy League as a freshman following the 2003-2004 season.
