Steinbach Pistons’ goaltender Roman Bengert is one of six nominees for the CJHL Top Goaltender Award. Bengert is now one of three MJHL players nominated for a CJHL award: Brady Keeper (OCN/Top Defenceman) and Jeremey Leipsic (Portage/Top Forward).
Bengert, who hails from Cole Harbour, NS, led the MJHL in three goaltending categories: wins (38), minutes played (2,743) and shutouts (five). In fact, his 38 wins were tops among all CJHL goaltenders. His efforts resulted in him winning the MJHL Top Goaltender Award and he was also named a first-team, all-star selection. Bengert was twice chosen MJHL Goaltender for the month and picked up one league Player of the Week honour.
At six-foot-three-inches, Bengert casts a large physical presence in the net. Next season he’s committed to Lake Superior State University of the NCAA.
Winners of the CJHL awards will be announced later this month.
