Jordan Binnington (born July 11, 1993) is a Canadian professional ice hockey goaltender who is currently playing for the Chicago Wolves in the American Hockey League as a prospect of the St. Louis Blues of the National Hockey League (NHL). Binnington played for Canada in the 2013 World Junior Championship.[1]

Playing career[edit]

Binnington played major junior hockey for the Owen Sound Attack in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) from 2009 to 2013. Binnington had a very strong 2010–11 OHL season posting a 27–12–1–4–7 throughout 46 games. During the 2011 OHL Playoffs, Binnington led the Attack past the London Knights, the Plymouth Whalers, and the Windsor Spitfires to end up in the John Ross Robertson Cup final versus the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors. The series went to a seventh game which was ultimately won by the Attack with an overtime goal by Jarrod Maidens. The Owen Sound Attack also participated in the 2011 Memorial Cup as OHL champions. He was raised in Richmond Hill and Toronto, Ontario.[2]

Ranked as the OHL's top 2011 NHL Entry Draft eligible goaltender (NHL Central Scouting Bureau's Final Rankings),[3][4] he was selected with the 88th overall pick in the third round by the St. Louis Blues.

On November 26, 2014, Binnington was called up under emergency conditions following the injury to Blues goaltender Brian Elliott.[5] On January 14, 2016, he made his in-game debut against the Carolina Hurricanes, coming in to relieve starter Brian Elliott in a 4-1 loss.[6]
