Vaughn CHL Goalie of Week: Senators’ prospect Brassard

Vaughn LogoFrançois Brassard of the Quebec Remparts was named the Vaughn Canadian Hockey League Goaltender of the Week for the week after winning three straight starts with a 2.00 goals-against-average and a .944 save percentage.

Brassard made 101 saves while backstopping the Remparts to three straight wins on the road beginning with 31 saves in a 2-1 win over second place Baie-Comeau. He followed that up with 37 saves and Third Star honours in a 5-3 win over Victoriaville, before closing the award-winning week as the First Star after 33 saves in a 3-2 win over Blainville-Boisbriand.

Brassard, a 19-year-old from Gatineau, Quebec, is playing in his second season in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Selected in the sixth round of the 2012 NHL Draft by the Ottawa Senators, he is tied for second in the QMJHL in wins at 30-18-2-2, and has two shutouts, a 2.78 goals-against-average and a .909 save percentage, which are both among the league leaders.

Also considered for the award this week was Daniel Altshuller of the Oshawa Generals after winning two games with a goals against of 1.50 and save percentage of .958, and Cole Cheveldave of the Kamloops Blazers, who was nominated for the second straight week after going 1-2-0-0 with one shutout, a goals-against-average of 1.68 and a save percentage of .938.
