The 6-4, 210-pound Traverse City, MI native is fourth among ECHL goaltenders in saves (727) and fifth in save percentage.
Last season, Halverson appeared in one game with the Rangers, playing 13 minutes and allowing one goal on six shots, and saw five games of action with the Wolf Pack (1-4-0, 3.42 GAA, 90.2% save percentage). In 24 ECHL contests in 2017-18 with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, the 2014 second-round (59th overall) Ranger draftee was 8-11-3, with a 3.74 GAA and a 90.2% save percentage.
In 31 career AHL games with the Wolf Pack, Halverson has compiled a record of 10-20-0, with a 3.45 GAA and an 89.0% save percentage. In 56 career ECHL outings, he is 25-24-3, with a 3.27 GAA, a 91.0% save and one shutout.
