Billy Sauer (born January 6, 1988) is an American professional ice hockey goaltender. He is currently an Unrestricted Free Agent who most recently played with the South Carolina Stingrays of the ECHL.

Playing career[edit]

Sauer was selected by the Colorado Avalanche in the 7th round (201st overall) of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft while playing with the University of Michigan in the CCHA. Despite a 71-38-4 record with the Wolverines in his four year collegiate career, Sauer was not offered a contract by the Avalanche.

In his first professional season in 2009–10, Sauer was signed by the Avalanche's American Hockey League affiliate, the Lake Erie Monsters. Sauer, however, primarily spent the year in the ECHL with loans to four different teams between playing sparingly in 15 games with the Monsters.

On August 27, 2010, Sauer was signed to a one-year contract in the ECHL with the Gwinnett Gladiators for the 2010–11 season.[1] After 18 games with the Gladiators on February 11, 2011, Sauer was loaned to the Worcester Sharks of the AHL. On February 16, Sauer was returned by the Sharks without featuring in a game and was promptly traded by Gwinnett for a second stint with fellow ECHL team, the Las Vegas Wranglers.[2]
