Cooke earns WHL honour

Another honour for Rockets goaltender Jordon Cooke.

Having already been named a finalist for WHL goalie of the year and a first team Western Conference all-star, Cooke was named goaltender of the month for March on Tuesday.

Cooke was also named goaltender of the month for September/October.

The 20-year-old Leduc, AB native appeared in six regular-season games during March, posting a 4-1-0-0 record with one shutout while allowing just eight goals on 162 shots for a 1.50 goals-against average and a .951 save percentage. 

Cooke held his opposition to one or fewer goals in four of his six appearances in March, including posting a shutout win over the Tri-City Americans on March 8th.

Cooke’s strong play in March helped the Rockets capture the Scotty Munro Memorial Trophy as the WHL’s top regular-season Club for the first time since the 2003-04 campaign while also helping Kelowna set new franchise records for wins and points in a single season.

Cooke is in his fourth and final WHL season with the Rockets, having posted a 92-34-4-8 record, including nine shutouts, along with a 2.54 GAA and a .915 save percentage over 149 career regular-season games.  He was selected by the Rockets in the fourth round, 79th overall, in the 2008 WHL Bantam Draft.
