Frontenacs’ Helvig becomes new franchise shutouts leader


Carolina Hurricanes prospect Jeremy Helvig is the new all-time shutouts leader in Kingston Frontenacs franchise history.

The 20-year-old turned aside 36 shots in Thursday’s 2-0 blanking of the Ottawa 67’s, recording his first shutout of the season and ninth in a Kingston Frontenacs uniform to surpass Peter Hamerlik for the most in franchise history.

A native of Markham, Ont., Helvig currently leads OHL goaltenders with a 2.42 goals-against average and a .927 save percentage, going 15-7-3-3 in his 28 games played. Originally Kingston’s third round pick in the 2013 OHL Priority Selection, he is 65-40-9-7 over his 128-game OHL career, posting a 2.71 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage.

Helvig set a new Frontenacs single-season mark for shutouts with six last season after being a fifth round pick of the Carolina Hurricanes in the 2016 NHL Draft.

Helvig and the Frontenacs continue their weekend schedule on Saturday afternoon in Hamilton.
