Troy Grosenick (born August 27, 1989) is an American ice hockey professional goaltender with the San Jose Sharks organization of the National Hockey League (NHL).

Playing career[edit]

Grosenick was born and raised in the Waukesha suburb of Brookfield, WI, where he attended Brookfield East High School and graduated in 2007. He then went on to play with Team Illinois' Midget Major team for a year, and eventually ended up playing for the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders for two years before heading off to play for Union College in New York.

Grosenick played for the Union Dutchmen in the NCAA Men's Division I ECAC Hockey conference. In his sophomore year (2011–2012), Grosenick's outstanding play was recognized when he won the Ken Dryden Award as the ECAC Goaltender of the Year, and was selected to the 2011–12 ECAC First Team All-League.[1] He was also named a First-Team AHCA All-American and was a Hobey Baker Award Finalist.

On April 8, 2013, following his third year at Union, Grosenick signed a two-year entry-level contract with the San Jose Sharks.[2]

On November 12, 2014, Grosenick was called up after goalie Alex Stalock was placed on injured reserve.[3] He made his NHL debut on November 16, 2014 against the Carolina Hurricanes where he went on to record a 45-save 2–0 shutout,[4] becoming the 22nd goalie to record a shutout in their debut,[5] and at the same time setting a record for most saves in a shutout debut in the modern era.[6]
