From Red Deer minor hockey to national prominence.

Local products Tanner Jaillet and Chris Gerrie earned Canadian Junior Hockey League awards Tuesday, with Jaillet being honoured as the Canadian junior A goaltender of the year and Gerrie sharing the national rookie of the year award.

“Congratulations to this year’s CJHL national award winners and to all of the nominees and finalists across our 10 leagues,” said Kirk Lamb, president of the Canadian Junior Hockey League, in a press release.

“These players represent the best of more than 2,800 junior A hockey players and exhibit the right mix of commitment, discipline and skill it takes to be an elite student-athlete in today’s game.”

Jaillet played three years with the Fort McMurray Oil Barons of the AJHL and this season won the league’s top goaltender award while posting a 30-8-4 record, a 2.01 goals-against average and .933 save percentage.

Gerrie, meanwhile, led all AJHL rookies in goals (18), assists (36) and points (54) and was second in Olds Grizzlys scoring with an average of 0.9 points per game. He was a unanimous choice for the 2013-14 AJHL all-rookie team and was named the league’s top first-year player.
