Calgary, Alta. – The Western Hockey League announced today Spokane Chiefs netminder Dawson Cowan has been named WHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending November 26, 2023.

The 18-year-old went 2-1-0-0 this week with a 2.00 goals-against average and .942 save percentage, but it’s his offensive output that has the league talking. 

Cowan capped off his week by registering a goal and assist to go along with 34 saves in a 5-2 win over the nationally ranked Portland Winterhawks on November 26. Midway through the third period, Cowan started the breakout himself by feeding Chase Bertholet, who found Rasmus Ekstrom for the game-winning goal. In the final minute of play, a shot glanced off Cowan and fluttered down the ice and into the Winterhawks’ empty net. The play marks then tenth goalie goal in WHL history- funnily enough, the most recent previous goalie goal was scored by another Spokane Chief, Lukas Parik, in 2020.

The Warren, Man. product kicked off the week saving 29 of 32 shots in a 3-0 loss to the Vancouver Giants on November 22..

Cowan and the Chiefs bounced back in his next start in a dominant 8-1 win over the Victoria Royals. The 6’1, 185-pound netminder made 24 saves en route to capturing third star of the night. 

Now in his second full WHL season, Cowan is ranked 12th in the league with a .921 save percentage to go along with a 3.06 goals-against average and 5-6-1-0 record.

Spokane (10-10-2-0) is on a two game win streak and are 5-5-0-0 in its past ten matches. 

The Chiefs are preparing for a tough three-game homestand that will see them face the Saskatoon Blades on November 29, the league-leading Prince George Cougars on December 2 and the Vancouver Giants on December 3.
