Can I just touch your statisticals?

Admittedly the Mooseheads are still in the QMJHL basement but they just got a raise and are planning on moving up to a fancy condo sometime very soon.

Veteran goaltender Mathieu Corbeil has once again taken home QMJHL defensive player of the week honours. In his past two games against the Wildcats and the Drakkar he had a 1.0 GAA and a 0.9714 save %, having made 68 saves on a combined 70 shots. This will definately put him in the running for CHL goaltender of the week.

Not only is MCT (and bonus props to Trapper) the Defensive player of the week but he is also Sportsnet's hot player of the week for the QMJHL.
The Mooseheads' resurgence is headlined by their veteran goaltender who captured the league's defensive player of the week honours last week. In his last two starts, Corbeil-Thérieault allowed just two goals on 70 shots for a sparkling .971 save percentage. Halifax is now riding an impressive four-game winning streak.
If we take a look at league goaltending stats we can see Mathieu clawing his way up through the rankings. Right now his 0.895 save % is just short of Olivier Roy's and OHHHHHH so close to 0.9%. A slow start has left his stats lagging, but in the past 10 games he actually has a 2.47 GAA and a 0.925 save%. Yes, 0.925%.

Dear bitches, cross your legs and stay away from my man.

I have much confidence that this goal tender will go VERY far in life. His commitment, skills, and passion for the game makes you fall in love with him a little more each time you see him play. He has a zest for life and is an all around cool, confident, kind and intelligent man. Teams will be lining up to sign him. Another Canadian great is in the mixer. You know the famous saying Slow and Steady takes the race.

Congrats Mathieu on Player of the week as well as Sportnet's hot player of the week.

QGirl.. I think he deserves all the cookies this time around.. sharing sucks sometimes :)
