Toronto, Ont. – The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Los Angeles Kings prospect Jacob Ingham of the Kitchener Rangers is the OHL ‘On the Run’ Player of the Week with a 3-0 record, 1.33 goals-against average and a .964 save percentage.
Ingham receives the honour for the second time this season, turning aside 108 of the 112 shots that came his way as the Rangers defeated Erie, Saginaw and Guelph. The 6-foot-4, 198Ib. goaltender earned star of the game recognition in all three outings, kicking things off with a 35-save effort in Erie on New Year’s Eve as the Rangers skated to a 6-1 victory. He returned to the crease on Friday, stopping 33 of 35 while picking up an assist on Jonathan Yantsis’ game winning goal as the Blueshirts doubled-up visiting Saginaw 4-2. Ingham finished off the weekend in fine style, making 40 saves in a 2-1 road win over the rival Guelph Storm to pull the Rangers into a first place tie atop the Midwest Division with 49 points.
A 19-year-old from Barrie, Ont., Ingham owns an 18-4-2-1 record with a 2.52 goals-against average and .929 save percentage with two shutouts over 25 appearances this season. He earned OHL ‘On the Run’ Player of the Week honours for the week of Dec. 10-15 and was recently named OHL Goaltender of the Month for December, helping Kitchener win eight in a row to begin the month. Now in his fourth OHL season, the former Mississauga Steelheads netminder owns a career record of 78-57-7-8 with a 3.19 goals-against average and .898 save percentage with five shutouts over 156 regular season games. He was originally Mississauga’s second round pick in the 2016 OHL Priority Selection and was chosen by Los Angeles in the sixth round of the 2018 NHL Draft.
Also considered for the award this week were Niagara IceDogs teammates Ivan Lodnia and Philip Tomasino, who each finished with three goals, eight assists and 11 points over four contests as their club earned a pair of high-scoring overtime wins.
