The CJHL announced that Steinbach Pistons standout goaltender Matt Thiessen has been named 3rd star of its monthly Gongshow Gear awards.
The Pistons goaltender was unbeatable in December going a perfect 7-0-0 for his MJHL-leading team. Still just 17, the Altona native posted a stingy 1.69 goals-against average in the time frame along with a solid .934 save percentage and one shutout.
The rookie netminder leads the MJHL in average at 2.05 as does his .924 save mark while posting a 19-3-0 overall record. He was recently named the MGEU/MJHL Goaltender of the Month in December.
Thiessen recently committed to attend the University of Maine where he will play for the Black Bears.
