Over a two-game stretch last week, the Kelowna Rockets’ stopper performed that duty as well as anyone in major junior hockey.

Cooke, 19, a native of Leduc, Alta., has been named the Canadian Hockey League’s goalie of the week ending Oct. 21.

Cooke posted a 2-0 record, including a shutout victory with a goals-against-average of 1.00 and save percentage of .967.

He made 59 saves between the pipes for the Rockets in a pair of victories including a 32-save performance on Thursday where he recorded his second shutout of the season as first star of a 3-0 win over the Prince George Cougars.

He then made 27 saves on Saturday as second star of a 4-2 victory over the Brandon Wheat Kings.

Cooke is playing in his third WHL season with the Rockets.  In 11 games so far this season he carries a 5-5-1-0 record with a goals-against-average of 3.19 and save percentage of .901.
