Tustin native, Jr. Kings alum Wolf wins CHL Goaltender of the Year honor
The Canadian Hockey League announced today that Dustin Wolf of the Everett Silvertips has been named the CHL Goaltender of the Year.
Also named the WHL Goaltender of the Year last month, in addition to winning USA Hockey’s Dave Peterson Goaltender of the Year, the Calgary Flames prospect continued to shine between the pipes in his third WHL season.
Through 46 games, Wolf compiled a 34-10-2-0 record, a 1.88 goals-against average, a .935 save percentage, and nine shutouts.
Wolf led all CHL goaltenders with a 1.88 goals-against-average, a .935 save percentage, nine shutout victories, and finished the season tied for second in wins.
The 6-foot, 165-pound Tustin product and Los Angeles Jr. Kings product continued to stifle opposing offenses throughout the regular season.
From Jan. 17-22, Wolf compiled a shutout streak of 147:47, including a pair of shutouts against the Seattle Thunderbirds. In 21 of his 46 games, Wolf allowed one goal or fewer.
The Silvertips selected Wolf in the fifth round (104th overall) of the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft, while Calgary chose Wolf in the seventh round (214th overall) of the 2019 NHL Draft.
For his WHL career, the 19-year-old Wolf has appeared in 127 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.
In April, Wolf was named to the WHL’s Western Conference First All-Star Team.
