Former North York Rangers Gianlucca Baggetta has established himself as one of the best goaltenders not just in NCAA Division III hockey, but the country.

During three years at Utica College in New York, Baggetta’s numbers have steadily improved. In 22 appearances for the Pioneers this season, the 23-year-old went 15-4-2 and recorded a 1.76 goals-against average and .941 save percentage. Those numbers are the best in conference, while being third in the country in save percentage and forth in GAA. This is the best statistical season by a Utica starter in the school’s history.

The Maple, Ont., native played three seasons with North York. During that time he started 93 games with North York, the Maple, Ont., native has posted a 50-44-1 with a 3.02 goals against average and a .909 save percentage.
