Silvertips Goaltender Earned Victory in net With Flames on Sept. 10
EVERETT, Wash. – The Everett Silvertips (@WHLSilvertips), seven-time U.S. Division champion and two-time Western Conference champion of the Western Hockey League, announced today that goaltender Dustin Wolf has been assigned to the Silvertips from the Calgary Flames of the National Hockey League. Wolf, preparing for his third WHL season, is expected to be available to suit up for the Silvertips on Opening Night, Friday in downtown Everett at 7:35 p.m. when the Silvertips host the Tri-City Americans.
Wolf, 18, was selected by the Calgary Flames in the seventh round (214th overall) of the 2019 National Hockey League Entry Draft and earned a victory in his first prospect game appearance with the Flames, an 18-save performance against the Edmonton Oilers in a 3-1 victory at Scotiabank Saddledome on Sept. 10.
Wolf last season was named WHL Western Conference Goaltender of the Year, CHL Scholastic Player of the Year, Silvertips Most Dedicated Player, and recipient of the Silvertips Community Relations, and Scholastic Player of the Year awards. The 5-foot-11, 160-pound goaltender in 2018-19 broke the Silvertips record and led the WHL in wins (41), also leading the league in save percentage (.936), goals-against-average (1.69), and minutes (3,615).
The Tustin, Calif. native was also second in shutouts (7), and fourth in saves (1,493), posting the second highest save percentage in the franchise’s single season history, the second lowest goals-against-average in franchise history – and fourth lowest in WHL history.
He was named WHL Western Conference first team All-Star last season, also suiting up for Team USA this summer at the World Junior Summer Showcase.
Since the Silvertips opened play in the 2003-04 season, a total of 19 players have suited up for the Silvertips and moved onto play in the NHL.
