The American Hockey League announced Wednesday that retired goalie Frederic Cassivi, a part of the Wolves’ 2002 Calder Cup championship team, will be a member of the league’s 2015 Hall of Fame class.

Cassivi spent parts of three seasons with the Wolves, going 31-22-7 with a 2.75 goals-against average and .912 save percentage in 67 regular-season contests. He was 2-2 in five appearances during the 2002 Calder Cup playoffs, helping the Wolves win the AHL title in their first season in the league.

Overall, Cassivi played in 500 regular-season AHL games, going 232-190-47 with a 2.83 GAA. The 232 wins are fifth in league history, and he also had 24 shutouts.

Cassivi and the rest of the class will be honored Jan. 26 as part of the AHL’s All-Star Classic.
