Sea Dogs’ Mathieu Corbeil Named Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Mathieu Corbeil of the Saint John Sea Dogs is the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week for the playoff week ending May 6 after posting two wins with a goals-against-average of 1.60 and save percentage of .931.


Corbeil backstopped the Sea Dogs to two straight wins to open the QMJHL Finals against the Rimouski Oceanic.  In Game 1 on Friday night, he stopped 40 shots including 15 in extra time to help the Sea Dogs hold onto a 3-2 victory in double overtime.  The Sea Dogs put together another 3-2 victory in Game 2 of the Championship Series on Saturday night with Corbeil making 14 saves in the win.


Corbeil, a 20-year-old from Montreal, Quebec, is playing in his fourth QMJHL season after joining the Sea Dogs midway through last season.  He was selected in the fourth round of the 2010 NHL Entry Draft by the Columbus Blue Jackets and has posted an impressive 14-0-1-0 record so far in the 2012 playoffs with a goals-against-average of 2.20 and save percentage of .916.


Also considered for the award this week was last week’s winner Mac Carruth of the Portland Winterhawks who went 2-1-0-0 with a goals-against-average of 2.34 and save percentage of .933 in the first three games of the WHL Championship Series against the Edmonton Oil Kings.  In the OHL, Michael Houser of the London Knights went 1-0-1-0 with a goals-against-average of 2.42 and save percentage of .938 in the opening two games of the OHL Championship Series against the Niagara IceDogs.
