“Paps is a very likeable kid. The boys are always ready to play hard for him. His game has grown a lot since the beginning of the year, as he has always had the ability to make the highlight reel saves but as he continues to mature with every start, his calmness to make the routine saves, his puck playing and his squareness to the puck are very noticeable as his confidence continues to grow” said Casselman Vikings coach, Geoff Seguin.
The Rockland, Ontario native also have two shut-outs, coming against Brockville and Richmond. He leads the CCHL2 in GAA (1.96) and SV% (.933) this season.
The Rookie of the Month honourable mentions are Reece Bolton of the Carleton Place Jr. B Canadians and Casselman Vikings forward Danyk Drouin.

Drouin, 16, netted 16 points (5G) over eight games including five multi-point games.
Goalie of the Month:

“After going through the loss of his close friends in the horrific car accident, he has dedicated his season to them and has lead our team with 5 victories in January including a shut out” explained Ottawa West Coach, Steve Sundin.
“Cameron is a real competitor and has always put his team first. It helps that he is close friends with Chris Cuglietta our other goalie and they feed off each other to make the OWGK a contender in the Martin Division. As his Head Coach I could not be prouder of Cameron’s performance this year”.
During an impressive month, Iob also recorded a huge win against the Renfrew Timber Wolves, a game that he had circled on his calendar and wanted to win for his good friend Alex Paguette who passed away in a car crash in 2017.
