Owen Sound Attack's Jordan Binnington named OHL's goaltender of the year

TORONTO - Jordan Binnington of the Owen Sound Attack was named the Ontario Hockey League's goaltender of the year on Thursday.

Binnington set Attack single season records with 32 wins and seven shutout victories. He produced the league's second lowest goals-against-average at 2.17 and third best save percentage with a mark of .932. His seven shutouts tied for a league-high and he helped the Attack earn their first Dave Pinkney Trophy for allowing a league-low 165 goals against.

"Receiving this award is something I am very proud of and will cherish forever," said Binnington. "It was a very exciting year for me on a number of levels and as a team we were such a strong hard-working group. My teammates made my job easier and I need to thank them first and foremost.

"The Attack organization is first class and the city of Owen Sound has been extremely supportive throughout my time here. I couldn't have asked for a better city to play in or a better group of fans to play in front of."

A veteran of four seasons in Owen Sound, the 19-year-old from Gravenhurst, Ont., helped the Attack capture their first OHL Championship in 2011 and was later named top goaltender at the 2011 Memorial Cup.

Binnington is a St. Louis Blues prospect selected in the third round of the 2011 NHL Entry Draft.

John Gibson of the Kitchener Rangers finished second in voting, while Malcolm Subban of the Belleville Bulls was third.

Binnington will be formally presented with the OHL's Goaltender of the Year Award on June 4 at the OHL Awards Ceremony held at the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto. He is also the OHL's nominee for the Canadian Hockey League Goaltender of the Year.

Quote of the Day

I watched many times this year the series between the Russians and Canada in 1972, and he was a dominating player there. After I watched the tapes, I respect him a lot more because he turned the series around. He was the guy. In that time, he was the best in the world. It’s a big honor for me to tie him.
