BROWN NAMED GOALIE OF THE WEEK

Keith Hershmiller Photography
Calgary, AB – The Western Hockey League announced today that Regina Pats goaltender Tyler Brown has been named the WHL Goaltender of the Week and the league nominee for Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending March 12, 2017.

The 19-year-old Brown went 3-0-0-0 with a 1.67 goals-against average, .949 save percentage, 93 saves and one shutout this past week, helping the Regina Pats bounce back after a short slide.

On Wednesday, March 8, he stopped 35 of 37 shots in a 4-2 win at Swift Current and was named third star for his efforts. On Friday, March 10, Brown was perfect in turning aside all 26 shots sent his way in a 5-0 win versus Moose Jaw, earning second star honours. Finally, he blocked 32 of 35 shots on Saturday, March 11, in a 4-3 win at Moose Jaw and was named third star.


In 48 appearances this season, the product of Winnipeg, MB, is 31-8-5-1 with a 2.65 GAA, .912 SV% and five shutouts. He ranks among the WHL leaders in GAA (fourth), wins (T-5th) and shutouts (T-2nd).

The 6-foot-1, 178-pound goaltender was originally listed by the Regina Pats and has notched a record of 59-34-7-6 with a 2.95 GAA, .908 SV% and seven shutouts over 117 career WHL regular season appearances since the 2014-15 season.

Should Brown win goalie of the week when he played such weak opposition over the weekend? Go Pats Go.

PS- All the Brown naysayers can take a close look at Brown rounding into form at the perfect time of year.

Atta boy Brown. I was at the game in Regina, behind the Pats net in the third period.

Pitcher this, its five zip Pats, and a Warriors fan starts heckling him that he's no good and that he's so brutal.

I said, look at the score.

Solid week and well deserved honour and recognition for Tyler Brown! He outplayed Zach Sawchenko in the home and home series against Moose Jaw. If he keeps outplaying the opposition, the Pats will have a chance to go far in the playoffs.

well he did play the garbage weakling back to back Fri Sat, but an award is an award I guess.

Where's all the Brown haters this morning?? Maybe they're from another province and still getting used to daylight savings...I'll check back later! :D

The haters are quiet after this. not surprised!

Congrats to Brown! Well deserved this past week! I believe he'll be focused for playoffs.

As a former goalie parent, I always take it easy on the goalies when it comes to criticizing! It's a team game and there are 5 other guys in front of the goalie that the puck has to get past!

GO Pats!!

Hey Rush guy, the Rush is not that big of a deal. Get over yourself.

Hey Anonymous Guy:: The Rush are about 9000 fans per game bigger than your Patsies. Maybe Regina will get a Lacrosse team so they can keep up with the Rush. Eat your heart out Sucker.

I have not been a naysayer, but up until recently, the jury was out in my mind. I admit he is a good goalie, on a very good team, and probably is a good kid too (or young adult). As was mentioned earlier by another on this topic, goalies do get a lot of unwarranted or undeserved criticism. This last stretch bodes well. Maybe he can deliver. I hope he does. As much as I acknowledge the positives, it was and remains for me (and my opinion is no less important but no more important than anyone else) the view that he looked better last year when the Pats were in, and the same for Hollett too. I just did not have that feeling or confidence that he would save the day, and that is why I could be seen as one of those in the undecided camp. That said, from what I read here, maybe goal is no longer the perceived weakest link with Regina, as there seems to be many questions about whether the trades improved the defense or made it worse, and if team chemistry and depth was depleted by these moves? Anyways, good luck in the playoffs. It is about time the Pats return to the playoffs and do well.

Do you really think the entire Rush fan base lives in Saskatoon??? Keep digging your hole deeper bud. Give your head a shake, you'll hear the rocks in there.
