New England Black Wolves goalie Doug Jamieson has had quite the summer to remember.
Jamieson, who was drafted second round, 19th overall by New England in the 2016 NLL Entry Draft, was coming off an exciting 2020 breakout season which resulted in being named NLL Goaltender of the Year.
In posting career numbers, Jamieson registered a league leading .829 save percentage, an 8.80 goals against average and an impressive 8-3 record during what was a shortened season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Approximately five weeks after being selected in early July Goaltender of the Year, Jamieson showed his true commitment to the Black Wolves by re-signing a three- year deal with them.
“When he told me that he was coming back, I was pumped,” Jamieson’s Black Wolves teammate Adam Bomberry said. “Having the best goalie in the world on your side gives everybody a confidence boost, from the management down to the players. Knowing you have a goalie of his caliber behind you allows everybody to play a foot taller and you take chances that you wouldn’t normally.”
Showing how- much they wanted this restricted free agent, the Black Wolves quickly stepped up and matched the offer sheet which was presented earlier to Jamieson by the Halifax Thunderbirds.
The New England organization and fans alike can rejoice as they will have Jamieson in the nets for years to come making those crucial saves and installing confidence in his team.
