ELITE GOALIES PRO MENTORSHIP GRADUATE EARNS TOP GOALIE IN AHL


Elite Goalies creates professional level experiences and customized camps for those looking to be among the game's elite.

Chicago Wolves goaltender Jake Allen on Thursday was voted the winner of the Aldege "Baz" Bastien Memorial Award as the American Hockey League's outstanding goaltender for the 2013-14 season.

The award is voted on by coaches, players and members of the media in each of the league’s 30 cities.

Allen, a second-round pick (No. 34) of the St. Louis Blues in the 2008 NHL Draft, enters the final weekend of the regular season with a record of 32-16-3 in 51 games for the Wolves, a Blues affiliate that has clinched a berth in the Calder Cup Playoffs.

Allen ranks first in the AHL in victories, goals-against average (2.07) and save percentage (.927) as he bids to become the second goaltender since 1984-85 to lead the league in all three categories. Allen leads in minutes played (3,078) and is tied for first with six shutouts, ranking second in shots faced (1,447) and saves (1,341).

Allen was named to the NHL All-Rookie Team last season for the Blues after going 9-4-0 with a 2.46 GAA and .905 save percentage.

The Aldege "Baz" Bastien Memorial Award, first presented in 1984, honors former Pittsburgh Penguins general manager Baz Bastien, who played four seasons in goal with the AHL's Pittsburgh Hornets (1945-49) before sustaining a career-ending eye injury. Bastien would go on to serve as coach and general manager of the Hornets, leading them to the 1967 Calder Cup championship.

Previous winners of the award include Jon Casey (1985), Sam St. Laurent (1986), Mark Laforest(1987, 1991), Felix Potvin (1992), Corey Hirsch (1993), Manny Legace (1996), Martin Biron (1999),Dwayne Roloson (2001), Jason LaBarbera (2004, 2007), Ryan Miller (2005), Dany Sabourin (2006),Michael Leighton (2008), Cory Schneider (2009), Jonathan Bernier (2010), Brad Thiessen (2011),Yann Danis (2012) and Niklas Svedberg (2013).

PASCO VALANA AT ROGER'S ARENA CANUCKS COACHING DAY!

I do not count the reps when I workout, I only count the reps when it starts hurting. ~ Mohamed Ali

The ELITE GOALIES mission is centered around a philosophy in which goalies improve through analysis, repetition, education and correction. By teaching goalies how to stay balanced psychologically, they are able to better control their environment and execute their technique on a more consistent basis.

ELITE GOALIES INC is proud to launch ELITE GOALIES CANADA. Our Canadian programs are led by our Master Instructors Pasco Valana and Jeff Battah. We're excited to provide you with professional services that have raised the bar in goaltending.
