Everett Silvertips star goaltender Dustin Wolf was named the Western Hockey League’s goaltender of the week Monday for the second consecutive week.
After opening the season with a pair of shutouts, Wolf posted his third consecutive shutout last Wednesday with 30 saves in a 3-0 win over Tri-City.
The 19-year-old Calgary Flames prospect then saved 35 of 36 shots last Friday in a 2-1 overtime win over Portland. During that game, he set a new franchise goaltending record for the longest scoreless streak at 216 minutes, 27 seconds.
Wolf didn’t play in Everett’s 6-1 rout of Tri-City on Sunday, which gave the Silvertips their first 5-0 start in franchise history.
Wolf has allowed only one goal in four games this season, while saving 105 of 106 shots.
Wolf has 23 shutouts over the course of his WHL career with Everett, which ranks third all-time in league history. Former Silvertips goaltender Carter Hart and former Vancouver netminder Tyson Sexsmith hold the record with 26 career shutouts.
Wolf was named the Canadian Hockey League goaltender of the year last season, meaning he was judged to be the best goalie out of the three leagues and 60 teams that comprise the CHL. The Tustin, California, native led the WHL last season in goals-against average (1.88), save percentage (.935) and shutouts (nine)
Wolf signed a National Hockey League entry-level contract with Calgary last May.
