  • Won the Del Wilson trophy as the WHL’s Goaltender of the Year, marking the first time in 22 years two different goalies from the same team have won the award in back-to-back years. Medicine Hat’s Troy Gamble (1984-85) and Mark Fitzpatrick (1985-86) were the last to accomplish the feat. 
  • Credits his dad for having had the most influence on his career -- “he’s been by my side the whole way, always pushing me and he was always very positive.”
