Jordon Cooke- Kelowna Rockets
With every list you have to include a goaltender in there somewhere, but this was a tough choice between goaltenders. Do you go with the Memorial Cup all-star Tristan Jarry or the goaltender of the year from the WHL, Jordon Cooke? As you can see, I’ve chosen to give the nod to Jordan Cooke for his stellar season.
“He came to us with a lot to learn and he had to earn a spot. He was committed to working hard and turned into a good young man and very good goalie while he was with us.” ~ Ryan Huska
While Cooke played in just 51 games for the rockets, his record his quite impressive going 39-7-0-4 with four shutouts. He tops that off with a goals against average of 2.28 and save percentage of .922. The rockets didn’t enjoy the success of the Oil Kings, but Cooke still had an incredible season between the pipes leading the Rockets to a first place WHL season.
He was also very consistent losing back-to-back starts just twice and stringing an impressive 13 game winning streak together between November 22 and January 4. Cooke is also undrafted but has been invited to the Los Angeles Kings development camp.
