April 14, 2010 - International Hockey League 2 (IHL 2) News Release

ROCHESTER, MI--- The International Hockey League (IHL) announced Wednesday that Tim Haun of the Fort Wayne Komets has been named the 2009-10 IHL Goaltender of the Year as selected by league head coaches, general managers and members of the media.

The 29-year-old native of Solsgirth, Manitoba has compiled a 25-11-0-2 record in 40 appearances in his first full season in the IHL. He leads all IHL goaltenders in goals against average (2.26), save percentage (.922) and is tied for first with three shutouts. His 25 wins rank him second in the league and is a career high for the netminder.

Haun earned back-to-back shutouts in January, the first coming on January 10th in Dayton. He made a total of 30 saves against the Gems to earn his first shutout of the season. He followed up that stellar performance with his next start on January 15th, turning aside all 38 shots he faced from Flint to record his second shutout. The league-high tying third shutout came on March 10th, where the Komet netminder shut the door on Bloomington, making all 25 saves in the contest.

The five-year pro has won seven of his last nine starts, including a four-game win streak that was snapped on March 20th. He has won numerous honors throughout the 2009-10 season, being named IHL Goaltender of the Week four times and Meijer IHL Goaltender of the Month once.

Haun will be presented with the award on Saturday, April 17th.
