McElhinney is a well-travelled and highly-respected backup goaltender whose path to the NHL began once the Calgary Flames selected him 176th overall in 2002. Once he finished up at Colorado College, he joined Calgary’s then-AHL affiliates in Omaha and Quad City. There, he proved to be an All-Star and saw his first NHL action with a short five-game stint in 2007-08. The next season saw his number shift from 31 to 1 and he saw spot duty until being traded to the Anaheim Ducks in 2009-10 and moving to Ottawa briefly a year later. In 2011-12, McElhinney appeared in just two games for the Coyotes and spent the following season in the minors. He played well enough to be awarded the backup roles with the Columbus Blue Jackets and he wore the numbers 30 and 31 during his time there. The 2016-17 season saw him on the move yet again, this time heading to the Toronto Maple Leafs on waivers and switching his jersey to number 35. A backlog of strong goalies exposed him to the waiver wire heading into 2018-19 and he filled in nicely during the team’s playoff run. Once the season was over, he was on the way to the Tampa Bay Lightning as a free agent.
