Gervais-Chouinard, a 6-foot-1, 186-pound education freshman was named as the top goaltender of the PotashCorp CIS University Cup men’s hockey championship over the weekend. He became just the ninth goalie in the 52-year history of the CIS tournament to earn a berth on the all-tourney squad from a team not involved in the gold medal final. The last time that this happened was in 2007 when Laurier’s Jeff MacDougald received the honour. Gervais-Chouinard posted a tourney-best .945 save percentage, kicking aside 86 of 91 shots. The 22-year-old rookie registered a 1-1 record with a 2.05 goals-against average, allowing five goals in 146 minutes and 22 seconds. After celebrating his birthday with a 34-save performance in a 3-2 conquest over Carleton in McGill’s opener last Friday, he kicked aside 52 of 55 shots in a 3-2 double overtime loss to Alberta, the eventual tourney champions.
