Sting’s Fazio sets new franchise single-season wins record

 

With his 30th win of the season on Saturday, Sarnia Sting netminder Justin Fazio set a new franchise mark for most single-season victories by a goaltender.

Fazio turned aside 37 shots to backstop the Sting to a 5-4 overtime win over the visiting Niagara IceDogs at Progressive Auto Sales Arena. His 30th wins surpasses the previous mark of 29 set by Dan Spence during the 2008-09 season.

Fazio has set a pair of other Sting goaltending records this season, becoming the franchise’s career wins leader back in October before also taking over the franchise lead in games played by a goaltender in December.

A 6-foot-1, 189Ib. former fourth round pick by the Sting in the 2013 OHL Priority Selection, Fazio has played to a 30-8-3-0 record this season, registering a 2.85 goals-against average and a .919 save percentage with one shutout.

His OHL career includes an 85-59-10-3 record with a 3.28 goals-against average and an .899 save percentage along with five shutouts.
