Wherever he goes, winning seems to follow Colten Ellis. The latest beneficiary for the netminder's winning ways is Charlottetown, where the 20-year-old from Whycocomagh, Nova Scotia started the new year in style. On January 29th, he appeared between the pipes for the first time in two and a half months. By the time the night was over, he had made the 21 saves and the Isles had a 2-0 shutout victory over Cape Breton. Two days later, he kicked aside 35 shots to deliver a 5-1 victory over the Mooseheads in Halifax.

The victory over the Eagles represented the 13th shutout of Ellis' outstanding major junior career, tied for seventh best all-time. The current league leader in wins, goals against average and save percentage, Ellis has started the year with 11 straight triumphs, just one shy of tying the QMJHL record originally set 48 years ago.

Congratulations to Colten on the accomplishment!
