Ice ‘tender tops for February

The Western Hockey League announced today (March 5) that Mackenzie Skapski, of the Kootenay Ice, has been named the Vaughn WHL Goaltender of the Month for February.

The 18 year-old goaltender from Abbotsford posted a 9-2-0-0 record with four shut-outs through February.

Skapski’s brilliant 1.27 goals-against average led all WHL goaltenders (minimum 300 minutes played) while posting a .956 save percentage, allowing just 14 goals on 318 shots-against in 660 minutes played.  His efforts also earned him a three star selection seven times, with two being first stars.

Skapski currently ranks 12th among all WHL goaltenders with a 2.66 goals-against average and a .913 save-percentage, in 59 games-played thus far this season.  His consistent play helped the Ice to a sizzling 9-2-0-0 record in February and the club currently sits eighth in the WHL Eastern Conference with a 33-30-2-0 record for 68 points.

His accomplishments make Mackenzie Skapski a deserving choice as the Vaughn WHL Goaltender of the Month for February.
