Kupsky, 27, joins Abbotsford from the Idaho Steelheads of the ECHL, where he leads the league’s goaltenders in save percentage (.955) and goals-against average (1.15) among netminders with seven or more games played. He was named ECHL Goaltender of the Month earlier today for the month of November 2022.

A native of Waukesha, Wisconsin, Kupsky played four NCAA seasons with Union College and received Third Team All-Star honours by the ECAC conference during his junior year in 2017-18. He was also selected by the San Jose Sharks in the seventh round (193rd overall) in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.
