Another Vancouver Giant has captured some weekly honours after a pair of victories last weekend. The Giants in conjunction with the Western Hockey League are thrilled to announce that 1999-born goaltender David Tendeck (North Vancouver, B.C.) has been named WHL Eli Wilson Goaltending Goaltender of the Week for the week ending April 21st.
Tendeck led the Giants to a pair of victories at home against the Spokane Chiefs in the first two games of the WHL’s Western Conference Championship series. The Arizona Coyotes prospect stopped 54 of the 57 shots fired his way for a .947 save percentage while compiling a 1.50 goals-against-average. He was named the first star of Game #1. In seven appearances so far in the playoffs, Tendeck has managed a 6-1 record with a 1.99 goals-against-average and .923 save percentage. He’s won each of his past five starts, surrendering two-goals or less in each of them. Tendeck is now 8-2-1-0 in 12 career WHL playoff appearances. During the regular season he finished with a record of 24-10-2-1 with a 2.48 goals-against-average, a .911 save percentage and four shutouts.
Tendeck represented the WHL in the 2018 CIBC Canada/Russia Series and was named a 2018 second-team WHL All-Star. He was selected by the Arizona Coyotes in the sixth round (158th overall) in the 2018 NHL Draft.
Tomorrow night David Tendeck and the Giants take to the ice in Spokane for Game #3 of the WHL’s Western Conference Championship series. They currently lead the series 2-0. Puck drop goes at 7:05 PM.
