Royals’ Sittler up for CHL Goaltender of the Week

Victoria Royals’ goaltender Jayden Sittler has been nominated by the WHL for the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week.

The Western Hockey League today announced that Victoria Royals’ goaltender Jayden Sittler has been nominated by the WHL for the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week.

Sittler, an 18-year-old from Red Deer, AB appeared in three games for the Royals this past week and registered a 2-0-0-0 record with a 0.71 goals against average (GAA), a 0.974 save percentage (SV%) and his first career WHL shutout.

In six games with Victoria this season Sittler has posted a 2-2-0-0 record with a GAA of 1.21, a SV% of 0.953 and one shutout.

The 6-0, 184 lb netminder was acquired earlier this season from the Kootenay Ice in exchange for a sixth round draft pick in the 2015 WHL Bantam Draft.

Before Sittler joined the Royals he started the 2014-15 season with the Fort McMurray Oil Barons of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL). He has played in six games for the Oil Barons, and recorded a 4-2-0 mark with a 2.79 GAA, a 0.907 SV% and one shutout.
