The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League today announced that Rimouski Océanic veteran netminder Philippe Desrosiers is the VAUGHN Goaltender of the Month for February.
The St-Hyacinthe native was phenomenal during the four-week span, registering nine wins in as many starts while posting an excellent 0.94 goals-against-average and .965 save percentage. Desrosiers posted three consecutive shutouts, establishing a new League record by shutting the door for a span of 243 minutes and 35 seconds. He gave up more than one goal in only two of his nine starts.
His stellar play helped him drop his goals-against-average to 2.67, squeezing him into fourth place among league leaders.
Desrosiers was drafted in the second round of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft by the Dallas Stars.
