The Western Hockey League announced today that Everett Silvertips goaltender Dustin Wolf has been named WHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending March 21, 2021.

Wolf, 19, was back up to his old tricks, recording two shutout victories, as the WHL’s U.S. Division returned to play this weekend. Wolf and the Silvertips went 2-0-0-0 with no goals against to start the season. The prospect of the Calgary Flames turned aside all 40 shots sent his way over the weekend.

Opening the campaign on Saturday, March 20 against the Spokane Chiefs, Wolf blocked all 22 pucks fired his way, as the Silvertips knocked off the Chiefs by a 2-0 margin. The Tustin product followed up on Sunday, March 21 with a perfect 18-save performance in a 7-0 victory over the Tri-City Americans.

The 6-foot, 168-pound puckstopper was selected by the Silvertips in the fifth round (104th overall) of the 2016 WHL Draft. The Calgary Flames called his name in the seventh round (214th overall) of the 2019 NHL Draft.

Wolf followed up his NHL draft year by being named WHL and CHL Goaltender of the Year in 2019-20.

Over the course of 129 career WHL regular season outings, Wolf is 90-31-4-2 with a 1.82 goals-against average, .935 save percentage, and 22 shutouts. His 22 shutouts are good enough for third all-time among all WHL goaltenders.

During his youth hockey career, Wolf starred for the Los Angeles Jr. Kings.
