Red Deer Rebel Riley Lamb named CHL Goaltender of the Week

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.
