Warrior goalie BCHL player of the month
It took Andy Desautels a while to get going - but once he did, there's been no stopping him.
The 19-year-old West Kelowna Warrior netminder was named BC Hockey League player of the month for December.
Desautels, in his first season with the Warriors, went 6-2 through December including a pair of pivotal back-to-back wins over division rival Penticton prior to the Christmas break.
He allowed just 13 goals over the eight games, registering a sparkling 1.5 goals against average, .943 save percentage and two shutouts.
Desautels was named first star three times and third star once.
The native of White City, SK, has amassed a 19-11-2 record with a 2.35 goals against average during his first season with the Warriors.
Desautels and the Warriors are third in the BCHL's Interior Division, one point behind second place Vernon and six in back of division leading Penticton.
The Warriors will host the Coquitlam Express Friday night at Royal LePage Place.
