Calgary Flames prospect Dustin Wolf has been named WHL goaltender of the year and is now one of three finalists for the Canadian Hockey League's goaltender of the year
The honour for Wolf marks the fourth time in the previous five seasons that a goaltender from the Everett Silvertips has won the award.
In his third season with the Silvertips, the Calgary Flames prospect continued to shine between the pipes. Through 46 games, Wolf compiled a 34-10-2-0 record, 1.88 goals-against average, .935 save percentage, and posted nine shutouts.
Among WHL goaltenders, Wolf led the way in GAA, SV%, and shutouts. He was tied with divisional rival Joel Hofer for the league lead in victories.
For his WHL career, the 19-year-old Wolf has appeared in 127 WHL regular-season games, compiling an 88-31-4-2 record, 1.85 GAA, .934 SV%, and 20 shutouts. Wolf presently ranks in a tie for fifth all-time in WHL history for shutouts by a goaltender.
Last month, Wolf was named to the WHL’s Western Conference First All-Star Team.
He was recently signed to a one-year entry-level contract with the Flames.
The Del Wilson Memorial Trophy honours a WHL goaltender deemed to be the most outstanding during the WHL regular season.
A goaltender himself, Delbert “Del” Wilson played for the Regina Abbotts and Regina Pats in the 1940s. Following the conclusion of his playing career, Wilson found success in the coaching ranks, winning 35 provincial hockey championships in Saskatchewan.
