Macmillan Carruth (born March 25, 1992) is an American ice hockey goaltender. He is currently playing with the Rockford IceHogs of the American Hockey League (AHL) while under contract to the Chicago Blackhawks of the National Hockey League (NHL). Carruth was selected by the Blackhawks in the 7th round (191st overall) of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

Playing careerEdit

On May 24, 2012, the Chicago Blackhawks signed Carruth to a three-year, entry-level contract valued at $750,000 per year.[1][2] The Blackhawks assigned Carruth to their minor league affiliate, the Rockford IceHogs, on September 15, 2012.[3] The IceHogs reassigned Carruth to his junior team, the Portland Winterhawks, on October 6, 2012.[4]

Carruth was rewarded for his outstanding performance during the 2012–13 WHL season by being named to the 2013 WHL West First All-Star Team.[5] He set the franchise record for most wins by a goalie on January 9, 2013 with his 106th win in a Winterhawks uniform.[6] At that point, he already held several franchise playoff goaltending records as well as the regular season record for wins (42).[7]

At the tail end of the 2013–14 season, Carruth was recalled to Chicago from the AHL's Rockford Icehogs prior to the 2014 NHL playoffs.[8]

On August 17, 2015, after the conclusion of his entry-level contract, Carruth was unable to secure a further contract with the Blackhawks, however remained within the organization in signing a one-year AHL contract with the Rockford IceHogs.[9] In a successful 2015–16 season split between the Rockford IceHogs and the Indy Fuel, Carruth was signed mid-season to another NHL deal with the Blackhawks on February 28, 2016.

As a restricted free agent, Carruth continued his tenure within the Blackhawks by signing a one-year extension on June 14, 2016.[10]
