Sea Dogs' Mathieu Corbeil wins weekly Canadian Hockey League goaltender award

TORONTO - Mathieu Corbeil of the Saint John Sea Dogs has been named the Canadian Hockey League's goaltender of the week.

Corbeil helped the Sea Dogs open the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League finals with two straight wins against the Rimouski Oceanic.

Corbeil made 40 saves in Game 1's double overtime win, then added another 14 saves in Game 2.

The 20-year-old Montreal native, who is a Columbus Blue Jackets prospect, is 14-0-1 in the playoffs with a goals-against average of 2.20 and a .916 save percentage.

Mac Carruth of the Portland Winterhawks and Michael Houser of the London Knights were also considered for the award.

Portland forward Sven Bartschi meanwhile was named the CHL player of the week after scoring four goals and one assist in three playoff games.

Andrew Agozzino of the Niagara IceDogs and Saint John's Tomas Jurco were also nominated.

Quote of the Day

After being through it and seeing the other [outdoor] games on TV, just the atmosphere is spectacular. To stand here -- and we are essentially almost on the blue line -- and look up [into the stands] and knowing it is going to be packed and playing our biggest rival in this setting is going to be pretty special.
