Maple Leafs goaltending prospect Ian Scott was named the winner of the Del Wilson Memorial Trophy today, presented annually to the top goaltender in the Western Hockey League.
In 49 games for the Prince Albert Raiders this regular season, Scott earned 38 wins and posted a 1.83 goals against average (GAA) and .932 save percentage (SV%). Scott's eight shutouts were the most by any goalie in the WHL this year and his performances backstopped the Raiders to finish the regular season in the league's top spot.
Scott and the Raiders are preparing to face the Vancouver Giants for the WHL Championship, with the winner punching a ticket to the Memorial Cup in Halifax. Through the first three rounds of the postseason, Scott has a .930 SV% and 1.85 GAA with three shutouts.
Drafted by the Leafs in the fourth round (110th overall) of the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, Scott signed his Entry Level Contract on December 14, 2018.
Scott was a member of the 2018 Calder Cup champion Toronto Marlies, joining the Maple Leafs' top affiliate for last year's playoff campaign at the conclusion of the WHL season. This winter, he represented Canada at the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championships.
The WHL Championship Finals begin this Friday.
