NORTH YORK, ONT – The North York Rangers are pleased to announce that goaltender Colby Muise has been named the OJHL’s goaltender of the year for the 2017-18 season.

It was a tremendous year for Muise, a 19-year-old rookie from Yartmouth, Nova Scotia. In 31 games with the Rangers, Muise led all goaltenders with a 1.81 goals-against average and a .934S% to top off a 22-7-1 record with four shutouts.

Muise teamed up with Jett Alexander to make one of the most dangerous goaltending duos in the entire country, helping North York to the best regular season in the club’s history. Muise and Alexander split the first-round playoff series against Buffalo, winning both games they played each to sweep the series.

Muise, OJHL Kewl Goaltender-of-the-Month for November and December, joined the Rangers this season after high school hockey at Upper Canada College in Toronto for the past two campaigns. Muise is a multi-sport athlete, having also played high-level baseball during his career.

Muise will be honoured with the top goaltender award later this year during the OJHL’s championship series in April.
