Tips’ Dustin Wolf named CHL’s 2020 Goaltender of the Year

The honor came five days after Wolf received the Dave Peterson Goaltender of the Year award.

The accolades have piled up for Dustin Wolf, and on Monday he received the biggest possible honor for a major junior hockey goaltender.

The Everett Silvertips’ star netminder was honored by the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) by being named the 2020 CHL Goaltender of the Year, meaning he was judged to be the best goalie among the 60 teams in the WHL, Ontario Hockey League (OHL) and Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL), which comprise the CHL.

Wolf, who just completed his 18-year-old season, had a dominating campaign in which he led the WHL in goals against average (1.88), save percentage (.935) and shutouts (nine) while tying for the league lead in wins (34). He helped the Tips finish 46-13-3-1, which was the second-best record in the WHL.

The California native, who now resides in Lake Stevens, was awarded the Del Wilson Tropy as the WHL’s Goaltender of the Year on May 19, thus making him eligible for the CHL award. He beat out Nico Daws of the OHL’s Guelph Storm and Kevin Mandolese of the QMJHL’s Cape Breton Eagles for the honor.

This is the third time in five years an Everett goaltender won the CHL Goaltender of the Year award. Carter Hart won the award in 2016 and 2018.

The honor came five days after Wolf received the Dave Peterson Goaltender of the Year award, which is presented by USA Hockey to the top American-born goaltender playing at the junior level worldwide.
