SAN JOSE, California - San Jose Sharks goaltending prospect J.P. Anderson set the all-time record for wins by an Ontario Hockey League goaltender by recording his 115th career win in a 4-1 victory vs. Sault Ste. Marie on Sunday Dec. 9.
Anderson, 20, currently backstops the Sarnia Sting where he has compiled 27 victories since 2012. His first 88 OHL wins were with the Mississauga Majors from 2008-11. The previous record of 114 wins was set by Kyle Gajewski from 2004-08 in 214 games played. Anderson eclipsed that mark in 197 games.

"We are proud to congratulate J.P. on achieving this milestone," stated Sharks Executive Vice President and General Manager Doug Wilson. "He has made great progress throughout his OHL career and we look forward to watching him continue to develop with Sarnia Head Coach and General Manager Jacques Beaulieu."
