Sea Dogs’ Booth named Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week


The Canadian Hockey League announced Tuesday that Callum Booth of the Saint John Sea Dogs has been named the Vaughn CHL Goaltender of the Week for the playoff week ending on May 7.

Booth, 19, made 51 saves in the first two games of the QMJHL’s President Cup final backstopping the top-ranked Sea Dogs to a 2-0 lead in the best-of-7 President Cup final. In game 1 on Friday, Booth made 24 saves as part of a 6-3 Saint John win at Harbour Station. He stopped 27 shots to lead the Dogs to a 3-0 win in game two. He set a franchise record with his third shut-out of the playoffs.
