Red Deer Rebels netminder Riley Lamb was named Canadian Hockey League Goaltender of the Week after backstopping his team to four straight wins.
Lamb had a 1.50 goals-against average and a .957 save percentage in the four Red Deer wins last week.
The week started with Lamb earning his first shutout of the year in a 4-0 win against the Prince George Cougars. He then made 36 stops in a 4-1 over Kelowna on Valentine’s Day.
Lamb’s strong play continued through the weekend, making 33 saves in a 4-3 win over Victoria Friday and 39 saves in a 4-2 win over the Vancouver Giants Sunday.
The Rebels have won eight of their last 10 games and are third in the Central Division with a 21-26-10-3 record. Lamb has won his last seven starts.
Red Deer trailed for just 13-and-a-half minutes during the 240 minutes Lamb was in net last week.
In 24 appearances this season, the second-year goalie has an 8-9-3-2 record with a 3.24 goals-against-average and a .905 save percentage. In the 2016-17 season, he had figures of 3.39 and .899 in 41 games.
The Rebels will visit Calgary Wednesday night to battle the Hitmen.
