The Western Hockey League announced today that Calgary Flames prospect Dustin Wolf of the Everett Silvertips has been named the WHL Vaughn Goaltender of the Month for Sept. and Oct. 2019.
Wolf compiled a 7-3-0-0 record, 1.75 goals-against average, .945 save percentage, and two shutouts in 10 games as the Silvertips reclaimed the familiar spot of first place in the U.S. Division and Western Conference with a 9-3-0-0 record to begin the 2019-20 WHL regular season.
Overall, Wolf ranked fourth in the league for wins, one behind a three-way tie for first place, and is tied for first in shutouts. Wolf also ranks third in GAA and second in save percentage among goaltenders to appear in at least five games this season.
The 6-foot, 165-pound Tustin product and Los Angeles Jr. Kings graduate was originally chosen by the Silvertips in the fifth round (104th overall) of the 2016 WHL Bantam Draft. In 91 career WHL regular-season games, the 18-year-old Wolf has compiled a 61-24-2-2 record, 1.82 GAA, .935 save percentage, and 13 shutouts.
Wolf presently ranks third all-time in shutouts by a Silvertips goaltender, behind only Carter Hart (26) and Leland Irving (21).
In 11 WHL playoff games, Wolf has a 5-4-1-0 record, 1.99 GAA, .915 save percentage, and one shutout.
At the 2019 WHL Awards, Wolf was named the recipient of Daryl K. (Doc) Season Trophy as the WHL Scholastic Player of the Year.
The Flames selected Wolf in the seventh round (214th overall) of the 2019 NHL Draft.
