Frontenacs’ Helvig sets new all-time franchise wins record
Jeremy Helvig is the winningest goaltender in Kingston Frontenacs all-time franchise history.
The Carolina Hurricanes prospect turned in a 29-save, first star performance on Sunday to help the Fronts fly past the visiting Kitchener Rangers 6-1 to pull within six points of first place in the East Division.
Helvig’s 76th career regular season win puts him ahead of Chris Clifford who played with the Kingston Canadians from 1983-87 for first on the franchise’s all-time career wins list.
A 20-year-old from Markham, Ont., Helvig leads OHL goaltenders with a .920 save percentage to go with a 2.56 goals-against average, a 26-13-5-3 record and two shutouts over 47 games this season.
Now in his fourth season with the Frontenacs, Helvig has played to an overall record of 76-46-11-7 with a 2.72 goals-against average, a .911 save percentage and a franchise-leading 10 shutouts over 147 career regular season games.
Helvig was Carolina’s fifth round (134th overall) pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.
