Calgary, Alta. –  The Western Hockey League announced today that Swift Current Broncos netminder Reid Dyck has been named WHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending February 4, 2024.

The Boston Bruins prospect had a 2-0-1-0 week, posting a pristine .85 goals-against average, a .970 save percentage and two shutouts.

Dyck helped the Broncos snap a four-game winless streak with his first shutout of the season against the Lethbridge Hurricanes on January 31. His 28-save performance included a brilliant sprawling glove save on a Kooper Gizowski shot. The Winkler, Man. Product was rewarded for his efforts as the second star of the game.

The 6-foot-4, 193-pound netminder followed it up with another airtight performance against the Regina Pats. Dyck stayed in position to rob Tanner Howe on a point-blank shot in the slot and preserve a 3-0 victory for the Broncos with 26 saves and a first-star recognition.

This marks the first time a Broncos goaltender has recorded back-to-back shutouts since Landon Bow earned clean sheets against the Kootenay Ice (5-0) and Tri-City Americans (2-0) in the 2014-15 regular season.

Dyck closed out the week with a relief appearance against Brandon, where he stopped nine of 10 shots in the third period before the Wheat Kings nailed the overtime winner.

The Broncos’ 2019 third-round pick is enjoying a career-best WHL season with an 11-6-1-0 record, a 2.84 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage.

Dyck was selected by the Boston Bruins in the sixth round, 183rd overall in the 2022 NHL Entry Draft.

The Broncos have points in seven of their past 10 games (5-3-2-0) to sit third in the Central Division.

Swift Current (24-18-4-2) continues a five-game homestand when it hosts Red Deer (27-15-1-6) on February 6.
