Player: Scott Munroe

Played with WBS Penguins: 2011-12

Where is he now? Playing with Vaxjo HC in Sweden

Having played four of his first five seasons with the Philadelphia Phantoms, Munroe, 32, was a familiar face to Penguins fans when he joined the team for the 2011-12 campaign. Before coming here, Munroe spent a season in the KHL.

In his only season with the Penguins, Munroe was solid, posting a 2.52 GAA and a .907 save percentage. He also won 19 games while sharing time with Brad Thiessen in net.

The following year, Munroe signed with the Adirondack Phantoms and played in 31 games before leaving for Sweden, where he currently has a 2.05 GAA and a .913 save percentage. Munroe spent six full seasons in the AHL and never earned an NHL call-up.

His best year came in 2008-09 when he won 31 games for Philadelphia, along with a 2.46 GAA and a .926 save percentage. Munroe was also the winning goalie in the longest game in AHL history — a five-overtime playoff contest on April 22, 2008.
