Hot goalie Vollrath leads Royals to playoffs

Victoria Royals goalie Coleman Vollrath is named the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week as the team finishes out the regular season.

The Western Hockey League announced that Victoria Royals’ goaltender Coleman Vollrath has been named the Vaughn Canadian Hockey League Goaltender of the Week.

The 6-0, 174 lb netminder from Calgary, AB appeared in three games for the Royals this past week and registered a 3-0-0-0 record with a 1.00 goals against average (GAA), a 0.970 save percentage (SV%) and two shutouts.

Vollrath also becomes the second goaltender (Patrik Polivka, 2013-2014) in Victoria Royals’ team history to receive the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week award.

Vollrath backstopped the Royals to a 6-3 win over the Kelowna Rockets who are the second ranked team in the CHL. He would follow-up with back-to-back shutouts with 2-0 and 3-0 victories over the Vancouver Giants.

The 1995-born goaltender set the franchise’s all-time record for shutouts in a season with six and also extended Victoria’s all-time franchise mark for team shutouts in a campaign to eight.

In 52 games with Victoria this season, Vollrath has posted a 28-14-3-1 record with a GAA of 2.97, a SV% of 0.905 and six shutouts.

Vollrath is in his third WHL season and has registered a mark of 52-34-4-4 to go along with seven shutouts, a 2.87 GAA, and a 0.909 SV% in 113 games played.

The Royals will play their final home game of the regular season Friday versus the Everett Silvertips for Fan Appreciation Night. Victoria will then finish off the 2014-15 campaign with an away game against the Silvertips on Saturday.

Victoria will have home ice advantage in the first round of the 2015 WHL Playoffs with Game 1 & 2 of the best-of-seven series occurring at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre. Game 1 will take place on Friday, March 27 and Game 2 on Saturday, March 28. Puck drop for both contests is scheduled for 7:05 p.m
