Calgary, AB – The Western Hockey League announced today that Saskatoon Blades goaltender Logan Flodell has been named the WHL Goaltender of the Week and the league nominee for Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending October 9, 2016.

Flodell, a 19-year-old native of Regina, SK, went 2-0-0-0 this past week, including a 31-save shutout in a 2-0 win over the Prince Albert Raiders on Thursday, Oct. 6. He followed that up with a 34-save effort in a 3-1 win over the Portland Winterhawks on Saturday, Oct. 8. Flodell’s performance earned him first-star recognition in both starts.

With a 0.50 goals-against average and .985 save percentage, Flodell led all WHL goaltenders from October 3 through October 9.

The 5-foot-11, 166-pound Flodell is an undrafted NHL free agent and ranks second in the WHL in save percentage (.947) and fourth in goals-against average (1.75) with a record of 3-1-0-0 this season.

Acquired by the Blades from the Seattle Thunderbirds prior to the regular season, Flodell is in his third WHL campaign, having compiled a record of 29-16-4-1, 2.70 GAA, .906 SP and four shutouts in 56 career WHL regular season appearances.
