Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Chase Marchand of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies is the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week for the playoff week ending April 17 after posting a 3-0-0-0 record including two shutout victories with a goals-against-average of 0.37 and save percentage of .981.


Marchand made 53 saves in three games last week helping the first place Huskies earn a berth in the QMJHL Semi-Finals following a 4-1 series win over the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada.  He set a new QMJHL record with a shutout-streak that lasted 223 minutes and 23 seconds beginning in Game 2 of the series and into the Game 5 finale.  On Tuesday night he made 17 saves and earned second star honours in a 1-0 overtime victory in Game 3, then stopped all 20 shots he faced on Wednesday as second star of a 3-0 Game 4 triumph.  In Game on Friday, he stopped 16 of 17 shots faced in two periods of work as the Huskies prevailed by a 5-1 score.

A 20-year-old from Upper Tantlion, NS, Marchand is playing in his third career QMJHL season and first with the Huskies.  During the 2015-16 regular season he carried a record of 29-6-0-1 including two shutout victories while maintaining the league’s lowest goals-against-average with a mark of 2.42 and the second best save percentage at .911 helping the Huskies finish first overall.  Marchand has earned the weekly award twice so far these playoffs with a goals-against-average of 0.41 and save percentage of .981 while his five shutouts have tied a league record.

Also considered for the award this week was Landon Bow of the Seattle Thunderbirds who posted a 3-0-0-0 record including one shutout with a goals-against-average of 1.00 and save percentage of .948 against the Everett Silvertips, and New Jersey Devils prospect Mackenzie Blackwood of the Barrie Colts who also went 3-0-0-0 with a shutout victory posting a goals-against-average of 1.31 and a save percentage of .956 against the North Bay Battalion.
