Silvertips’ Dustin Wolf named WHL goaltender of week

Third time this season the 17-year-old netminder has won the award

Dustin Wolf continues to impresss in his first season as Everett’s No. 1 goaltender.

The 17-year-old netminder was named the Western Hockey League’s goaltender of the week on Monday for the third time this season after stopping 89 of 92 shots over three winning efforts in net over the weekend.

Wolf posted a .967 save percentage and 1.00 goal allowed average in three games against U.S. Division opponents. He saved 25 shots in a 4-2 win over Spokane on Wednesday and stopped a season-high 43 shots in a 2-1 win at Seattle on Saturday before capping his week with a 21-save shutout against the Chiefs on Sunday.

The Tustin, California native has won the award three times this season, which ties him with Prince Albert’s Ian Scott for the WHL lead for most goaltender of the week honors in 2018-2019.

Wolf is draft eligible in 2019 and is expected to be one of the first goaltenders taken. He’s currently listed as a ‘C’ rated prospect by NHL Central Scouting, a fourth-to-sixth round projection.
