Rockets' Cooke, goalie of the week again
Oct 28, 2013 / 1:17 pm
Kelowna Rockets' goaltender Jordon Cooke is on quite a roll.
The 20-year-old native of Leduc AB was named the Western Hockey League's top goaltender for the second straight week Monday after an impressive showing in Victoria.
Cooke backstopped the Rockets to a pair of wins in the provincial capital over the weekend.
Friday, Cooke stopped 28 shots including two penalty shots in leading the Rockets past the Cougars 4-1. He was named the game's second star.
One night later, Cooke was the first star in a 2-1 shootout win.
He stopped 33 of 34 shots in regulation time and overtime and all three shots he faced in the shootout.
Cooke has yet to lose in regulation time this season posting an 8-0-0-2 record.
His goals against average (1.85) and save percentage (.939) are both tops in the league.
Cooke's eight wins are good for a tie for third among WHL netminders.
The Rockets, 9-2-0-2, lead the BC Division a point better than the second place Cougars who have also played two more games than Kelowna.
They sit three points behind Western Conference leading Portland with two games in hand.
The Rockets are off until Friday when they travel north for the first of back-to-back games in Prince George.
Kelowna begins a four game homestand Nov 6 against the Red Deer Rebels.
