CALGARY, Alta. – The Canadian Junior Hockey League (CJHL) announced Wednesday that the trio of forward Ryan McAllister (Brooks Bandits/AJHL), goaltender Dawson Green (Winnipeg Blues/MJHL) and forward Dalton Bancroft (Trenton Golden Hawks/OJHL) have been named its Gongshow Gear 3 Stars of the Month for October.

2ND STAR: DAWSON GREEN, (G) WINNIPEG BLUES (MJHL) – The MJHL’s Farmery Brewery top netminder honouree last month did it all for the Blues, including scoring a goal.

In eight starts, Green went 7-1-0-0 and sported a solid 1.62 goals-against average along with a stingy .940 save percentage and posted one shutout.

The same game he blanked the Selkirk Steelers 3-0 at home back on Oct. 16, he notched the night’s final tally as he corralled the puck behind his own net then proceeded to launch it high and down the length of the ice into an empty net with 16 seconds remaining to notch the first goal by a MJHL goalkeeper since 2013.

A 20-year-old from Brandon, Man., Green, who recently had an opportunity to fill in as a practice goaltender for the AHL’s Manitoba Moose, leads all MJHL netminders in wins (11), average (1.78) and save percentage (.936).
