Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Olivier Roy is the ADT CHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending April 5. Roy posted two wins with a goals-against-average of 1.55 and a save percentage of .946. Roy is now a three-time winner of the award this season.
Roy and the Screaming Eagles opened their second round playoff series on the road against the Quebec Remparts Friday night with a marathon game extending to four overtime periods. Roy made 30 saves in regulation time and another 39 saves in overtime as second star of the 3-2 victory. The game lasted 132 minutes and 57 seconds which marks the second longest game in QMJHL history. Roy made 22 saves Sunday in game two of the series to help the Screaming Eagles win 5-3 and remain unbeaten in post-season play, now leading the Quebec Remparts 2-0 in their series.
Roy, a 17-year-old from Amqui, Quebec, is in his second QMJHL season with the Screaming Eagles. He finished the regular season with a goals-against-average of 2.80 and a save percentage of .906 with two shutouts. Roy is eligible for the 2009 NHL Entry Draft.
Three-time winner Martin Jones of the Calgary Hitmen was nominated from the WHL this week for posting a 2-0-0-0 record allowing just two goals on 40 shots for a goals-against-average of 1.00 with a save percentage of .950. 16-year-old rookie JP Anderson of the OHL’s Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors was also considered for making 109 saves in three games.
