Roman Basran is again the WHL's top goalie of the week

Basran a two-peat winner

Roman Basran has been on quite a roll of late.

The 18-year-old Kelowna Rocket netminder was named Tuesday the WHL's top goaltender of the week for the second straight week.

Basran allowed just two goals over his two starts this past week to earn top honours.

Despite being the loser of record, Basran recorded his first shutout of the season during a 1-0 shootout loss to the Edmonton Oil Kings to kick off the week.

He stopped all 27 shots he faced during 65 minutes of work, surrendering just a single goal in the shootout.

Saturday, Basran turned away 19 of 21 shots in a 3-2 victory over the visiting Prince George Cougars.

In all, he recorded a 0.96 goals against average and 0.958 save percentage over those two games.

Meantime, earlier in the day, the Rockets announced defenceman Cayde Augustine had been dealt to the Moose Jaw Warriors.

Augustine, who went undrafted in the bantam draft, was listed by the Rockets in 2017.

He played 55 games last season, recording two goals and six assists.

Augustine has been a healthy scratch for much of this season, dressing for just six games.

The Rockets received a conditional sixth-round pick in the 2023 bantam draft in return.

Kelowna will hit the road later this week for their annual December prairie road trip.

Their six-game swing through the Eastern Division begins Friday night in Prince Albert.

The Raiders lead the east with 18 wins and 40 points through their first 27 games.

The 14-8-1-2 Rockets are second in the BC Division, four points in back of division leading Kamloops. The Blazers have played two more games.
