50-save effort earns Player of the Week nod for Trinity Western's Currie
Monday, March 12, 2012 - Submitted by BCIHL Media
Trinity Western University goaltender Kevin Currie has been named the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League's Player of the Week for the week ending March 11th.
Currie put in one of the season's most impressive goaltending performances on Sunday, shutting down the University of Victoria Vikes offence to the tune of one goal on 51 shots. The Langley, B.C. product stopped 41 shots through two periods -- including 27 saves in the middle frame -- before finally being beat by a Dustin Taylor shot early in the third.
Even then, Currie held down the fort with 13 third period saves, allowing his team the opportunity to tie the game and press for a win.
Currie joined Trinity Western midseason after the departure of John-Paul Chapman and was receiving just his second start on Sunday afternoon.
Runners up for this week's award include Trinity Western University forward Brendan Long and University of Victoria forwards Mark Prest and Dustin Taylor.
