The work Michael Giugovaz did between the pipes of the Peterborough Petes didn’t go unnoticed by the Canadian Hockey League.
After posting a 2-0-0-0 record with a goals against average of 1.44 and a .964 save percentage last week, the rookie netminder was named Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week.
The 17-year-old is doing his best to wrestle the starting job in Peterborough away from Andrew D’Agostini, who is in his fourth season with the Petes. It’s Giugovaz, though, that’s been in the crease for his team’s first set of back-to-back wins – kicking aside 80 shots en route.
Giugovaz, a tenth round pick in the 2011 OHL Priority Selection, has a 4-2-2-0 record with a 3.39 goals against average and .912 save percentage in nine appearances this season.
