The Sarnia Sting’s Ben Gaudreau has been named the Ontario Hockey League’s Goaltender of the Week, after a pair of wins in Kitchener and Windsor over the weekend.

The San Jose Sharks prospect and 19-year-old native of Corbeil, Ont., boasted a 1.99 goals-against average and a .907 save percentage.

“Gaudreau was victorious on Friday in Kitchener, stopping 17 of the 20 shots he faced as the Sting defeated the Rangers 6-3,” an OHL release noted. “The 6-foot-2, 172Ib. goaltender returned to the crease on Saturday, stopping 22 shots in a 2-1 overtime win over the Windsor Spitfires, picking up second star recognition.”

Gaudreau is embarking on his third season in Sarnia after a strong sophomore season where he went 19-18-4-1 with a 3.71 goals-against average and .891 save percentage over 44 games.
