Thunderbirds Bow named WHL Goalie of the Week

Calgary, AB – The Western Hockey League announced today that Landon Bow of the Seattle Thunderbirds has been named the Vaughn WHL Goaltender of the Month for April 2016.

A 20-year-old from St. Albert, AB, Bow posted a record of 8-1-0-0 for the month of April. He recorded a 1.59 goals against average and a .936 save percentage to go along with one shutout. In the nine games he appeared in, Bow held the opposition to two goals or fewer on seven occasions.

Bow’s consistent play has guided the Thunderbirds to a sweep of the Kelowna Rockets in the WHL Western Conference Championship and a trip to the 2016 WHL Championship Series. The 6’5”, 208 lb netminder claimed a pair of first star honours and one second star nod in April.

This marks the second time this season that Bow has claimed the honour after being previously named the Vaughn WHL Goaltender of the Month for March. Bow is in his first WHL campaign with the Seattle Thunderbirds and has posted a 74-56-8-5 record with 15 shutouts in 160 career regular season contests.

These accomplishments make Landon Bow a deserving choice as the Vaughn WHL Goaltender of the Month for April.
