2009-10: Scott Wedgewood turned it on in his second season with Plymouth, though in a backup role to Matt Hackett. In his 18 games, he would post a .909 Save % with a 3.26 GAA. He would also manage to start in 4 playoff games for Plymouth with an astounding .956 Save % and 2.07 GAA.
2010-11: Wedgewood established himself as a starter in his third OHL season with Plymouth and was at his best in the Whalers' seven-game first round playoff series win over Kitchener. In 55 regular season games, Wedgewood had a record of 28-20 and two shutouts with a 2.99 GAA and .908 save percentage. Wedgewood started 10 of 11 games for Plymouth in the playoffs and was 4-6 with a 3.27 GAA and .923 save percentage. Wedgewood stopped 52 of 57 shots in a first round win over Kitchener and had a 54-save effort in an overtime loss to eventual OHL champion Owen Sound in the second round.
2011-12: Wedgewood played for OHL West Division champ Plymouth and won a bronze medal with Canada at the 2012 U20 World Junior Championship. Wedgewood was 28-13 with 3 shutouts in 43 games for the Whalers and had a 3.02 goals against and .911 save percentage. He started all 13 playoff games and was 7-6 with 2 shutouts and had a 2.38 goals against and .928 save percentage. Wedgewood started three games for Canada; recording a shutout against the Czech Republic and stopping 30 of 32 shots in a 3-2 win over the USA. In his third start, the semifinal game against Russia, he was replaced by Phoenix prospect Mark Visentin in the second period after allowing four goals in an eventual 6-5 loss. Wedgewood signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Devils in March, 2012.
A technically sound, hybrid style goaltender with great down-low net coverage and reflexes, Wedgewood often plays like he has ice in his veins. Even with an improved Plymouth team in-front of him in his second year as the Whalers go-to-guy, he often faced the unenviable task of getting barraged with shots on a nightly basis. He does however seem to thrive under that type of heavy pressure. Wedgewood has the makings of a big-game goaltender and has shown the ability to be a dominant workhorse, often carrying the team on his back for large stretches of time. As a bonus, he also has great puck-handling skills, often acting as a third defenseman.
Despite a few bumps in the road for Wedgewood this year, he learned a lot, especially as a member of Team Canada’s Bronze Medal winning World Junior team. Wedgewood does have junior eligibility left, however now that he is signed, the Devils will likely have him start his career in either the AHL or ECHL. He is still a few years away, but there isn’t much doubt that he is the Devils undisputed goaltender of the future.
