St. Louis Blues goalie prospect Colten Ellis recorded his 18th career shutout on Sunday night, setting the all-time shutout record for the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

The previous record of 17 shutouts was set by Philippe Cadorette from 2012-16. Other goalies on the QMJHL's shutout list include Corey Crawford (11), Roberto Luongo (10), Felix Potvin (10) and Jake Allen (9).

Ellis was drafted in the third round (No. 93 overall) in the 2019 NHL Draft. Earlier this month, Ellis signed a three-year entry-level contract with the Blues that will begin with the 2021-22 season.

This season, Ellis has posted a 19-1 record to go along with a 1.80 goals-against average and a .926 save-percentage for the Charlottetown Islanders. His seven shutouts this season are tied for the most in a single single season in league history.

In four seasons in the QMJHL, Ellis has played in 149 games, posting a 99-42 record, a 2.32 goals-against average and a .912 save-percentage.
