Accolades pile up for Rockets goalie
Nov 1, 2013 / 4:28 pm
More awards for Kelowna Rockets netminder Jordon Cooke.
The 20-year-old veteran was named Friday the Vaughn Western Hockey League goaltender of the month for September/ October.
This follows his selection this week as the CHL's goaltender of the week and back-to-back selections as the top netminder in the Western Hockey League.
Cooke posted an impressive 8-0-0-2 record with one shutout through 10 appearances in September and October, allowing just 19 goals on 312 shots for a 1.85 goals-against average and a .939 save percentage in that span.
Both are league bests.
Cooke started 10 of the Rockets’ 13 games through September and October, holding the opposition to two goals or fewer in seven of those 10 appearances.
His strong play helped the Rockets to a 9-2-0-2 record through September and October, putting them in first place in the BB Division. His efforts saw Cooke selected among the Three Stars five times in his 10 games, including being named the 1st Star on three occasions.
A product of Leduc, AB, Cooke is currently in his fourth and final WHL season with the Rockets, having posted a 61-27-4-6 record with a 2.61 GAA and a .914 save percentage over 108 career regular-season games.
He was selected by the Rockets in the fourth round, 79th overall, in the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft.
Cooke and the Rockets are in Prince George for a back-to-back set with the Cougars Friday and Saturday.
