Capitals’ Rawlings named BCHL Player of the Week

Three consecutive road wins puncuated by a shutout have earned Cowichan Valley Capitals netminder Chris Rawlings the BCHL Player of the Week honours for December 29th to January 4th, the league announced Monday.

Rawlings began the week by turning aside 46 of 49 shots to lead the Capitals to a 4-3 victory in Nanaimo. Two nights later, the 20-year old earned third-star honours after making 24 saves in another 4-3 Caps win in Burnaby.

On Saturday, Rawlings was named first star after a 33-save shutout performance in Surrey. In total, the North Delta, B.C. native won all the games he played, stopping 103 of 109 shots for a 2.00 goals-against average and a .945 save percentage.

Rawlings has been one of the BC Hockey League's busiest netminders this season, appearing in 35 games and recording a league-high 24 wins. His 2.84 GAA and .913 SV% are both amongst the BCHL's best.

The Capitals are next in action on Friday when they visit the Nanaimo Clippers.
