Saskatchewan Huskies stopper named top netminder in all of Canadian university hockey

What a season it’s been for former Kelowna Rockets stopper Jordon Cooke.

The 22-year-old member of the Saskatchewan Huskies has been named the CIS goaltender of the year.

Earlier this month, the Leduc, AB native was named the Canada West goalie of the year, in addition to being named to the conference all-star team.

In his second season with the Hsukies, Cooke set a new program record with 19 victories, while leading the conference with .921 save percentage.

His play led the Huskies (22-6-0) to their first Canada West regular season title in 16 seasons.

“Jordon’s strong play early on in the year really gave our young team the confidence it needed to believe that it could be successful,” said Saskatchewan head coach Dave Adolph. “Every night he gave us a chance to win and our team would find a way.”

Cooke and the Huskies are in Halifax this week for the CIS national championship.

In four season with the WHL’s Rockets, Cooke posted a 92-34-4-8 record.

In his final season in Kelowna, 2013-14, he was named the WHL’s goaltender of the year.
