Jordan Papirny named CHL Player of the Week

Toronto, ON – The Canadian Hockey League today announced that Jordan Papirny of the Brandon Wheat Kings is the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week for the playoff week ending May 8 after posting a 2-0-0-0 record with a goals-against-average of 1.80 and save percentage of .944.
Papirny was solid under pressure between the pipes for the Wheat Kings who earned a pair of overtime victories on home ice in the Rogers WHL Championship Series against the Seattle Thunderbirds.  He turned aside 31 shots in Game 1 on Friday as part of a 3-2 overtime decision earning second star honours, then stopped 37 shots in Game 2 on Saturday as third star of another 3-2 overtime triumph.  With a 2-0 series lead, the Wheat Kings continue their quest for the Ed Chynoweth Cup with Game’s 3 and 4 scheduled for Tuesday and Wednesday in Seattle. 
A 20-year-old from Edmonton, AB, Papirny is playing in his third full WHL season with the Wheat Kings.  So far this post-season the netminder carries a 14-4-0-0 record including one shutout with a goals-against-average of 2.75 and save percentage of .904.
Also considered for the award this week was Chase Marchand of the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies who backstopped his club to a 3-0 series lead against the Shawinigan Cataractes in the QMJHL Championship Series making 79 saves with a goals-against-average of 1.33 and save percentage of .952.  In the OHL Championship Series, 2016 NHL Draft prospect Tyler Parsons helped the London Knights take a 2-0 series lead against the Niagara IceDogs making 51 saves while posting a goals-against-average of 1.03 and save percentage of .962.
