Brampton - Goaltender Patrick Killeen of the Brampton Battalion has signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Pittsburgh Penguins of the National Hockey League, it was announced Tuesday.

Killeen, who turns 20 on Thursday, was a sixth-round choice of the Penguins in the 2008 NHL Entry Draft.

Killeen currently is with the Wilkes Barre-Scranton Penguins, the NHL club’s American Hockey League affiliate. Wilkes Barre-Scranton is to face the Albany River Rats in a best-of-seven East Division semifinal starting Wednesday night at Albany.

Killeen was the Ontario Hockey League’s busiest goaltender in 2009-10, appearing in a league-high 63 games and leading goalies in minutes played with 3,693. He posted a won-lost-extended record of 23-25-13 with five shutouts, a 2.42 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage.

He set single-season club records for games played by a goaltender, shutouts and starts and tied Bryan Pitton’s club mark of 19 consecutive starts. Killeen fashioned a club-record shutout streak of 162:05 from Feb. 21-28, breaking Thomas McCollum’s record.

A fifth-round pick in the 2006 OHL Priority Selection, Killeen played 139 games over four seasons, compiling a record of 63-48-17 with a club-record eight shutouts, a 2.74 goals-against average and a .902 save percentage. He is second on the Battalion’s career list in appearances, starts, wins and minutes played.

Killeen, who appeared in 13 playoff games with the Troops, played all 11 postseason games this year.
