Fort Wayne's Nick Boucher Named Sher-Wood/CHL Goaltender of the MonthJanuary 5, 2012 - Central Hockey League (CHL)
The Komets have been one of the better teams in the CHL and a large factor of this success comes from net minder Boucher who has recorded some of the best goaltending numbers in the league. The Leduc, Alberta native finds himself first place in almost every category, including his 2.28 G.A.A., his .922 save percentage, and his 18 total wins.
In the month of December, Boucher went 10-1-1 only playing in one game without earning a point for his team. Boucher allowed twenty-four goals in twelve starts with his hot play helping push the Komets to first place in the Turner Conference.
Other goaltenders receiving consideration for the monthly award for December include Allen's Marco Cousineau, Bloomington's Zane Kalemba, Quad City's David McKee, Rapid City's Danny Battochio and Tim Boron, Rio Grande Valley's Wylie Rogers, Texas' Mark Guggenberger, Tulsa's Ian Keserich and Wichita's Adam Russo.
