FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CALGARY, AB – Future Considerations Hockey today announced Mackenzie Blackwood of the Barrie Colts as the Double Blue 360 draft eligible Goaltender of the month for February.
Blackwood pieced together a 7-3-0-0 record with a 3.25 goals against average and .899 save percentage in 10 appearances for the Colts. The 18-year-old topped the 30-save plateau four times in the month and twice in losses where he allowed three or fewer goals.
The 18-year-old was 61st in Future Considerations’ Midterm ranking for the 2015 NHL Draft.
Also considered for the award was Nick Schneider of the Medicine Hat Tigers. Schneider was 2-3-0-0, recording a 2.74 goals against average and .901 save percentage in seven appearances.
For the first time, any goalie from peewee to pro will have their own video analytic system and performance library at their disposal in Double Blue Sports. It typically takes a player or goalie coach hours to compile, edit, arrange and analyze video and statistics from a single game. Double Blue Sports will reproduce the same results with advanced video and statistical analytics within seconds.
