Five wins in five starts.

That sums up last month for Devin Chapman, goaltender for the Cariboo Cougars, who has recently been honoured for his play between the pipes by the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League (BCMML).

The 17-year-old is the BCMML Player of the Month for February, posting a 1.20 goals-against-average (GAA) and a .955 save-percentage (SV%).

Chapman also recorded his first career BCMML shutout en route to the award, coming on Feb. 23rd against Great Vancouver on home ice.

The Williams Lake native has started in the 13 games this season as the first back-up netminder for Cariboo.

His overall record consists of 10 wins, a loss, and two ties, along with a combined 2.34 GAA.

The Cariboo Cougars are in their final weekend of the 2018-19 season before playoffs, ending the year on the road.

They’ll face the Vancouver North West Hawks Saturday (March 9) at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday (March 10) at 10:45 a.m. from the North Shore Winter Club.

Currently, the Major Midget Cougars rank third in the BCMML standings with a record of 25-8-5-0, but only a single point behind two teams tied for first place.
