Stars Debut: January 2, 2010 at Manitoba
Career Stats: 12 GP, Record: 4-5-1, 2.86 GAA, 0.908 Sv.%, 2 SO
Todd Ford joined the Texas Stars on December 28, 2009 on a PTO, called up from the ECHL’s South Carolina Stingrays. He made his Stars debut on January 2, 2010 at Manitoba, suffering a hard-fought 5-4 shootout loss to the Moose at MTS Centre. Even though Texas lost the game, it began a streak for Ford that would turn into a franchise record. The Calgary, Alberta native earned his first career AHL shutout in his next appearance, a 36-save effort in a 2-0 win over San Antonio on January 12, 2010. Ford then became the second Texas goalie in team history to record back-to-back shutouts with 26 saves in a 3-0 road win at Lake Erie. He finally conceded a goal in his next game, January 26, 2010 vs. Milwaukee, as Colin Wilson scored at 18:01 of the second period. It was the only goal Ford allowed in a 3-1 Stars win over the Admirals, but it ended his shutout streak at 163:25. The streak broke Brent Krahn’s franchise record of 162:36, which was set in November of 2009 and it still stands today as the longest in Stars history.
After the Stars: Ford was released from his PTO on March 2, 2010 and, after rejoining South Carolina, earned another AHL call-up, this time to the Portland Pirates. He returned to South Carolina for the 2010-11 season and also earned a call-up to the Hershey Bears, where he played in 13 games.
