CALGARY — Everett Silvertips netminder Dustin Wolf has been named the Western Hockey League’s goaltender of the year.

Wolf compiled a 34-10-2 record, 1.88 goals-against average, .935 save percentage, and posted nine shutouts in 46 games before the 2019-20 season was shut down by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 19-year-old from Tustin, Calif., had a 88-31-6 record, 1.85 GAA, .934 save percentage and 20 shutouts over three seasons with Everett.

Jiri Patera of Brandon Wheat Kings was the runner-up.

It’s the fourth time in five seasons that a Silvertips goaltender has won the award. Carter Hart won in the 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons.

Wolf was selected by the Calgary Flames in the seventh round, 214th overall, of the 2019 NHL draft.
