Engelage and the Spitfires opened the Rogers OHL Championship Series Wednesday night in Windsor against the Brampton Battalion.  He made 22 saves including 12 in the first period to grab the win in a 10-1 victory in favour of the Spitfires.  Carrying a 1-0 series lead into Brampton Friday night, Engelage made 25 saves including 15 in the second period to preserve the 5-3 win.  The win was Engelage’s fifth straight victory and helped the Spitfires grab a 2-0 series lead in the best-of-seven final for the J. Ross Robertson Cup.

Engelage, a 20-year-old native of Oshawa, Ontario, is playing his overage season with the Spitfires in his third year with the club.  In 18 playoff games he has posted a 3.09 goals-against-average and .898 save percentage with 12 wins.  This season Engelage set a new OHL single season record for wins with 46.  He was named recipient of this award earlier in the year for the week ending September 28.
