Knights’ Tyler Parsons named Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that 2016 NHL Draft prospect Tyler Parsons of the London Knights is the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week for the playoff week ending May 1 after posting a 2-0-0-0 record with a goals-against-average of 1.00 and save percentage of .964.


Parsons made 53 saves in two games last week backstopping the Knights to a four-game series victory over the Erie Otters in the OHL’s Western Conference Championship Series.  He made 26 saves in Game 3 last Tuesday night helping the Knights prevail by a 5-1 score, then earned first star honours on Wednesday with a 27-save performance in another 5-1 victory to secure the series.  The Knights will now face the Eastern Conference champion Niagara IceDogs for the Robertson Cup beginning Thursday night in London.

An 18-year-old from Chesterfield, Michigan, Parsons is playing in his second career OHL season with the Knights and is ranked third among North American goaltenders by NHL Central Scouting for the 2016 NHL Draft.  Through three rounds of post-season action Parsons leads all OHL netminders with a goals-against-average of 2.27 and save percentage of .924 to go along with his 12-1-1-0 record.

Also considered for the award this week was last week’s recipient Landon Bow who backstopped the Seattle Thunderbirds to a 4-0 series win against the Kelowna Rockets going 2-0-0-0 with a 2.05 goals-against-average and a .928 save percentage in the final two games.  In the QMJHL, two-time playoff award winner Chase Marchand continued his strong play between the pipes for the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies posting a 3-1-0-0 record including a shutout victory with a goals-against-average of 1.76 and save percentage of .942 eliminating the Moncton Wildcats in six games to advance to the league final against the Shawinigan Cataractes.
