Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Leland Irving
Leland Irving was born on April 11, 1988 in Barrhead, Alberta. A star goaltender for the Everett Silvertips of the Western Hockey League, he was selected in the first round of the NHL Entry Draft by the Calgary Flames. Upon completion of his junior career, Irving was tied for the WHL's all-time shutout lead with 21.

Irving would join the Flames' AHL affiliate for the tail end of the 2007-08 season, but would not take to the ice. He would spend the entire next season at the AHL level and produce an impressive 2.23 goals-against-average and a solid .912 save percentage.

An injury to the Calgary Flames goaltender opened the door for Irving's first taste of NHL action in December of 2011. He made his NHL debut in a losing cause, but was impressive, making 39 saves and was named the game's third star.
