Binnington Named OHL Goalie of the Year
ST. LOUIS – The Ontario Hockey League has named Blues goaltending prospect Jordan Binnington the OHL’s Goaltender of the Year.
Binnington, 19, set Owen Sound Attack single season records with 32 wins and seven shutouts while posting the OHL’s second lowest goals-against average (2.17) and third best save percentage (.932).
Binnington’s seven shutouts tied for a league-high and helped the Attack win their first ever Dave Pinkney Trophy for allowing the fewest goals in the league (165).
The 6-foot-2, 169-pound goaltender has spent the past four seasons with Owen Sound, accumulating an 86-51-14 record with a 2.90 goals against average, a .910 save percentage and nine shutouts.
In 2011, he helped the Attack earn its first OHL Championship while also being named the top goaltender at the 2011 Memorial Cup.
The Gravenhurst, Ontario native was drafted by the Blues in the third round (88th overall) of the 2011 NHL Draft.
