Wake up, start your week, and dive into the Monday Morning GDI Goalie News!
Who stopped the most shots… which netminder rebounded from a tough loss… who had the best performance of the week?
Look below, get your goalie fix to start the week. Here we go!
Teagan Sacher was able to get the Lethbridge Hurricanes back in the win column with a steady game against the Brandon Wheat Kings.
It took a short 20 second overtime for the Hurricanes to defeat the Wheat Kings.
Sacher has been showing no signs of rust coming off his injury. Sacher stopped 25 of the 27 shots that came his way
Sacher has been able to post a 4-6-0-1 record with the struggling Hurricanes since coming over in a trade from the Regina Pats.
Sacher has also posted 1 shutout with the Hurricanes so far this season.
Eric Williams of the Spokane Chiefs was perfect when the Chiefs hosted their bitter rivals, the Tri-City Americans.
Williams wasn't overly busy making 16 saves for the shutout, but he was there when his team needed him.
"Goalie Eric Williams had an outstanding performance, stopping all 16 shots fired his direction. The Americans' Rodney Southam had the team's best chance to get on the board in the 2nd Period, but Williams stretched out to stop the breakaway chance with his stick"
The MJHL recently named their All-Star Teams for the 2013/2014 season.
Two of the three All-Star goalie positions were taken by GDI Goalies.
Zach Rakochy of the Steinbach Pistons was named to the 2nd All-Star team and Zac Robidoux from the Portage Terriers made the Rookie All-Star team.
Rakochy is having a very strong final season of junior eligibility, posting a GAA of 2.28 and a SV% of .931. He also has 3 shutouts to go with a 18 and 8 record. Don't forget about the goal he scored near the start of the season as well.
Robidoux on the other end of the spectrum is having a great start to his junior career. He has a 2.31 GAA along with a .921 SV%. He has 1 shutout so far this season with a 15-8 record.
The Manitoba Provincial Midget playoffs recently got under way.
The Brandon Wheat Kings, Eastman Selects and both the Winnipeg Wild and Thrashers all hold 2-0 game advantages in their opening playoff series.
Mario Petit didn't allow a single shot past him when the Eastman Selects hosted the Southwest Cougars.
Petit stopped all 25 shots that he was faced with.
Petit and the Selects were also red hot on the penalty kill, as they killed off all 9 of the Cougars power plays.
