Kristers Gudlevskis(35) Syracuse Crunch

Kristers Gudlevskis

Tampa Bay Lightning 5th round pick in the 2013 draft (#124 overall) Latvian goalie Kristers Gudlevskis(35) was reassigned to start his rookie season with ECHL affiliate Florida Everblades

He was quickly recalled and has made the north-south trips already a few times in his first half year pro.

The still somewhat lanky 6’3″ 189 lbs. net minder had pretty stellar numbers in 11 games with the ‘Blades, where he went 7-4 with a 1.83 GAA and .928 SV%.

Currently up with Syracuse Crunch, he’s already appeared in 18 AHL games posting another winning mark of 10-5-2-2 with a 2.48 GAA and .910 SV%.

Signed to a three-year entry level deal through 2016, he played in a pair of KHL games last season with Dinamo Riga.

The 21-year was named CCM/AHL Player Of The Week for January 6-12 recording back-to-back weekend shutouts and a midweek victory. He was also chosen to represent his country in the upcoming Sochi Olympics.

He’ll likely need to continue to prove himself on the way up.
