Goaltender Bryan Pitton is the newest member of the Montreal Canadiens ECHL affiliate Brampton Beast.

At  6'3″, Pitton was selected in the fifth round of the 2005 NHL Entry Draft by the Edmonton Oilers.

He stood in-between the pipes for KH Sanok of the Polish Hockey League  last season, and earned a 1.97 GAA, and a league-best save percentage of .934 in 44 games played.

Prior to playing in Poland, Pitton spent time on the former Central Hockey Leagues' Allen Americans, helping to lead the team to a league championship.

The 27-year-old made his professional debut for the AHL's Springfield Falcons in 2008, and has made 17 appearances for the Falcons and Oklahoma City Barons since.

Pitton has 127 games of ECHL experience to his credit with both the Stockton Thunder and Bakersfield Condors between 2008-2009 and 2011-2012.

He has called Brampton home before, as Pitton spent his entire OHL career with the Brampton Battalion, and played a total 124 games for the former OHL club from 2005-2008.

As the first goalie signed to the Beast for this upcoming season, it'll be exciting to see what Pitton can do at the Powerade Centre.
