David Tendeck Named WHL Goaltender of the Week
The Vancouver Giants in conjunction with the Western Hockey League are pleased to announce that 1999-born goaltender David Tendeck (North Vancouver, B.C.) has been named WHL Goaltender of the Week and the league’s nominee for CHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending December 17th.
In two games this week, Tendeck posted a record of 2-0 with a 0.50 goals-against-average, a save percentage of .984 and one shutout. He turned aside 61 of the 62 shots fired his way guiding the G-Men to victories over Victoria Friday and Prince George Sunday.
For the season, the sophomore goaltender has put together a record of 12-6-0-1 with a .913 save percentage and a 2.90 goals-against-average and two shutouts. The NHL draft eligible netminder currently sits third in the WHL in goals-against-average, and is tied for third in shutouts. For the month of December, Tendeck is 6-0 with two shutouts and a save percentage of .949. Dating back to November 11th, Tendeck has won 9 of his past 11 starts.
David Tendeck was originally selected by the Giants in the sixth round (130th overall) in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft.
The Vancouver Giants have won six straight games including a 2-0 Teddy Bear Toss victory yesterday at home against Prince George. Tendeck and his teammates are enjoying a well-deserved break but will return to action at the Langley Events Centre on Wednesday, December 27th against the Everett Silvertips.
