Former Los Angeles Jr. King Dustin Wolf was named Canadian Hockey League (CHL) Goaltender of the Week for the week ending Jan. 27 after posting a 2-0-0-0 record, including a shutout, to go along with a goals-against-average of 0.50 and save percentage of .984 with the Western Hockey League’s (WHL) Everett Silvertips.
Wolf becomes the league’s first two-time award recipient of the season after turning aside 61 shots last week for the Silvertips, who maintain their first-place status in the WHL’s U.S. Division with a 35-12-1-1 record.
Wolf recorded his league-leading fifth shutout of the season on Friday night with a 36-save performance that earned him First Star honors in a 2-0 win over the Tri-City Americans. On Saturday night, he stopped 25 shots as part of a 9-1 triumph over the Lethbridge Hurricanes.
The 2001-born Wolf was chosen by the Silvertips in the fifth round of the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft. He currently leads the entire CHL with 31 wins carrying a personal record of 31-11-1-0. His goals-against-average of 1.82 and save percentage of .930 are both among the WHL leaders.
Earlier this month, NHL Central Scouting recognized Wolf on its midterm rankings of 2019 draft-eligibles; he’s listed No. 17 among North American goaltenders.
