Things to note. Well first I considered sprucing these up and making this post enjoyable but I just watched the Leafs/Lightning and…..oh fuck it.
-Goaltender Dustin Tokarski has won 67 career games in a Spokane jersey, tied for second all-time with Scott Bailey and just one short of the career record set by Aren Miller.
Tokarski win 13 games as a 17-year-old rookie in 2007-08 and 30 games last season. Through 37 starts this season, the Tampa Bay Lightning’s fifth round selection has won 24 games.
The Watson, Saskatchewan product is also threatening to break his own single season goals against average record he set last year at 2.05.Tokarski leads the WHL with a 1.82 goals against.
Although the Chiefs season high winning streak of 11 games was snapped last Friday against the Vancouver Giants Spokane still has one streak remaining after winning their sixth in a row away from home last Saturday night. The six game road winning streak is the third year in a row that Spokane has won that many in a row as the visiting team.
Ok so that last item is worded terribly. And I didn’t write it. I copied and pasted that shizz.
Dustin Tokarski set a number of franchise records last season, including shutouts and lowest goals against average, and was named the Memorial Cup MVP to help him garner the Inland Nortwest’s Amateur Male Athlete of the Year award.

Ahw more recognition for my kitten! The name of the award does make me giggle. Like whoa. It sounds a bit like a porno. But that might just be me.
Sunday is team poster give away night. I love those. I have one from like the past four seasons. Last season Tokarski was the only one smiling in the picture. Man I hope they let the boys smile this time.
