Legends of Hockey -- NHL Player Search -- Player -- Ben Scrivens
Ben Scrivens was born on September 11, 1986 in Spruce Grove, Alberta. Undrafted into the NHL, he signed as a free agent with the Toronto Maple Leafs after studying for four years at the prestigious Cornell University.

Scrivens made his professional debut in the East Coast Hockey League with the Maple Leafs' affiliate, the Reading Royals, during the 2010-11 season. His play in the ECHL was impressive, earning him a spot in the ECHL All-Star game and two separate call-ups to the Toronto Marlies of the American Hockey League. Scrivens would finish the 2010-11 season in the AHL.

In 2011-12, Scrivens would continue to improve as a professional goaltender. In 39 American League games he recorded an impressive .926 save percentage to go along with a 2.04 goals-against-average. He also got his first taste of NHL action during the 2011-12 campaign, posting a record of 4-5-2 in 12 contests.

Scrivens was returned to the AHL prior to the playoffs and played a key role in the Marlies run to the 2012 Calder Cup final. He started all 17 playoff games for the club and put up a miniscule 1.92 goals-against-average and a sparkling .935 save percentage, though the Marlies were eventually defeated by the Norfolk Admirals.

After three seasons playing in the Maple Leafs organization, he was traded, along with Matt Frattin and a second round pick, to the Los Angeles Kings for Jonathan Bernier.

Scrivens started the 2013-14 season as a backup goalie to Jonathan Quick of the Kings. However, he lost his job when Quick went down with an injury and Martin Jones took over as the started. The Kings then traded him to the Edmonton Oilers for a third round draft pick.

In Edmonton, Scrivens set an NHL record for the most saves by a goaltender during a regular season shutout during a 3-0 victory over the San Jose Sharks on January 29, 2014.

On December 28, 2015, Scrivens time in Edmonton would come to an end. He was traded to the Montreal Canadiens in exchange for Zack Kassian.
