The Canadian Hockey League has announced that Cole Kehler is the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week after posting a 3-0-0-0 record with a goals-against-average of 1.00 and save percentage of .976.
Kehler receives the honor for the second time this season after turning aside 120 shots across a trio of victories for the Winterhawks. Kehler earned first star honors in all three of his games last week beginning Wednesday night against the Prince George Cougars with 30 saves in the 2-1 victory. On Friday night, he stopped a season-high 47 shots in a 4-1 road win against the Spokane Chiefs, then stopped 43 shots on Saturday in Everett as part of a 3-1 triumph over the Silvertips playing in his 100th career game.
The third year netminder currently holds a 10-2-0-0 record including one shutout with a league-best goals-against-average of 2.09 and save percentage of .935. This is the third time in Kehler’s career he’s won the CHL’s Goaltender of the Week.
The Winterhawks are back in action this Saturday night at the Moda Center against the Tri-City Americans. Tickets are available here!
