I'm talking in the ECHL. Hovinen is a pretty damn good european goaltender who was drafted 5th round by Minny.
And so am I. There's two goalies above Hovinen in the organization where he's playing. There's two goalies above Wedgewood in the Devils organization. An injury to any of them and Wedgewood is no longer the backup in Trenton - that is, even assuming he would be a backup anyway.
