Curtis McElhinney is a Canadian goalie on the Anaheim Ducks.
McElhinney was drafted in 2002, but finished an impressive career at Colorado College, before joining the Flames AHL affiliate in Omaha. He took advantage of opportunities for him to start when Brent Krahn was injured and played well. He earned himself the backup job in Calgary for a brief stint, before Curtis Joseph was signed for one year. He began the 2009-10 season as the backup in Calgary, winning 3 of 7 starts, and posting a 3.22 GAA. Just before the trade deadline, he was dealt to Anaheim in exchange for Vesa Toskala, who will backup fellow Finn Miikka Kiprusoff. McElhinney flourished in Anaheim, winning 5 of the 7 starts he got with the Ducks.
