If Riley Lamb hadn’t been named WHL Goaltender of the Week after his scintillating B.C. road trip, a case could’ve been made for a judicial inquiry.
Thankfully, the league saw fit to give the award to Lamb for the second time this month. The 19-year-old was nothing short of sensational last week as the Rebels won all four games they played west of the Rockies.
The second year netminder was 4-0 with a 1.50 goals-against-average, .957 save per centage and one shutout.
Lamb posted his shutout last Monday in Prince George, making 25 saves in a 4-0 win over the Cougars.
Two days later, Lamb stopped 36 of 37 shots in a 4-1 win against the B.C. Division-leading Kelowna Rockets.
Not done yet, Lamb continued his impressive streak with a 33-save performance in a 4-3 win against the Victoria Royals Friday, and 39 saves in a 4-2 win over the Vancouver Giants on Sunday.
The Rivers, Manitoba native is on a blazing 7-0-0-0 streak with a 1.70 GAA and .947 SV% with one shutout since Jan. 30.
Late Tuesday, the Canadian Hockey League announced Lamb is also receiving CHL Goaltender of the Week honours for his standout performances during the week of Feb. 12-18.
Lamb and the Rebels will look to continue their impressive run Wednesday night when they wrap up a six-game road trip against the Calgary Hitmen (7 p.m. on 106.7 The Drive).
