The Quebec Major Junior Hockey League announced today that the 19-year old netminder has been named the Telus second star of the month and the Vaughn goaltender of the month. Auger was named last week’s first star in the QMJHL and CHL goaltender of the week.
Auger is certainly worthy of the recognition and is the key reason why Saint John is off to a fairly solid 4-2-0-1 start. The Sea Dogs are averaging 37.13 shots against per game, the most in the league.
Following last night’s 4-2 win over the Halifax Mooseheads, Auger’s record improved to 3-1-0-1 to go along with a 0.954 save percentage (best in the league) and 1.78 goals against average (second best in league). He has started every game since missing the first two of the season with a lower body injury. In those five games he has faced 40 or more shots three times.
Auger and the Sea Dogs travel to Sydney to take on the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles on Friday night at 7pm.
