Hunter Virostek named AJHL Defensive Player of the Week
Posted October 2nd, 2017 @ 8:35 pm

Our very own Hunter Virostek #35 is named the Canalta Hotels AJHL Defensive Player of the week, for the week of September 25 – October 1.


Dragons goaltender, Hunter Virostek, is the Alberta Ford Dealers AJHL Defensive Player of the Week.  Virostek posted a 3-0 record, including a win at the AJHL Showcase last week, and is undefeated in his last 6 games. 


Virostek received the Viterra Star of the Game Award on September 30th after turning away 31 of 32 shots versus the Spruce Grove Saints and earning a 3-1 win at the AJHL Showcase.  He allowed just 4 goals on 78 shots over three games played last week and held a 1.33 GAA.

"It has been great so far this season, being able to coach Virostek, and have him be part of the team." said Dragons Assistant Coach Brayden Klimosko.


Virostek is now 6-1-0 in the regular season and leads all AJHL goaltenders with a 1.46 GAA and .944 SV%.   The 18 year-old from Turner Valley, AB is in his second season with the Dragons.


You can see Virostek take on the Olds Grizzlys at our next home game on Saturday October 7, starting at 7:30PM at the Drumheller Memorial Arena.
