This past week, netminder Dalton Dosch was awarded the Manitoba Junior Hockey League’s Player of the Week recognition following a rock solid week of action.
The Willow Bunch, SK. native dressed in two games for the Oil Caps, going 2-0-0 on the week. After stopping 32 of 34 shots in Virden’s home victory over the Winnipeg Blues on Thursday, the 19-year-old recorded a shutout on Saturday, stopping all 23 of Dauphin’s shots in a 3-0 triumph over the visiting Kings.
Dosch has now improved his record to 5-8-0, and holds a .916 save percentage. His 2.57 save percentage ranks third in the league – behind only Isaac Labelle and Matthew Radomsky – and his one shutout keeps him on pace with the league leaders in that regard.
In 23 games for Virden in 2017-18, Dosch put up a .901 save percentage and a 3.09 goals against average. Dosch and the Oil Capitals return to action Thursday evening, as they welcome Steinbach to the Tundra Oil & Gas Place for their third of five straight home contests. Puck drop is set for 7:30 P.M.
