G Juha Metsola’s 39 saves lead Lethbridge over Swift Current

Lethbridge goaltender Juha Metsola stopped 39 shots in last night’s 5-2 win over Swift Current, improving his record to 5-2 with a 2.40 GAA and .928 (10th in the WHL) save percentage. Metsola has picked up exactly where he left off last season, having already posted two shutouts on the season. Metsola had 33 saves the night before in a 7-3 victory over Kelowna.

Last year with Lethbridge, won CHL Goaltender of the Week twice in the 2nd half of the season and led the Hurricanes to the WHL finals. Metsola is eligible for the 2009 NHL Draft and will be a goalie to keep an eye on for the future.
