Red Deer Rebels goaltender Chase Coward has been recognized for a great weekend between the pipes.
On Monday, Coward was named Western Hockey League Goaltender of the Week, for the week ending March 27.
The 19-year-old won both of the games he played this past week, recording a 1.00 goals-against average, .944 save percentage and one shutout, as Red Deer racked up home-ice victories over the Medicine Hat Tigers and Swift Current Broncos.
The Swift Current, Sask., product stopped all 13 shots he faced Friday as the Rebels upended the Tigers 3-0. He followed that performance by turning aside 21 shots against his hometown Broncos in a 6-2 Red Deer victory the following night.
In 37 career WHL regular season games, all with Red Deer, he holds a 21-10-1-2 record, a 2.53 goals-against average, .907 save percentage and two shutouts.
