He won it again, also equaled Fluery's shut-out record.

What's his upside?
Eventual replacement for Johnson?
Potential trade bait?

Either of the above. I think at this time next year, you assess where Thiessen is at, developmentally, and look at what Johnson has left in the tank, and go from there.

I like Thiessen, but I'd still like Shero to draft and groom a goalie or two. My thought is that Thiessen is going to be ready sooner than we need him, and he may not get his shot in this organization.

Good for him. He's been solid and I'm curious to see what he would do backing up Fleury at some point.

The American Hockey League announced today that Brad Thiessen of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins has been named the winner of the Aldege “Baz” Bastien Memorial Award as the AHL’s outstanding goaltender for the 2010-11 season, as voted by coaches, players and members of the media in each of the league’s 30 cities.

Thiessen has posted a sparkling record of 34-7-1 in 44 appearances and ranks first in the AHL with his franchise-record 34 wins, second with a 1.93 goals-against average, ninth with a .922 save percentage and tied for first with seven shutouts while helping the Penguins to the top-ranked defense in the AHL. The 2010-11 First Team AHL All-Star was twice named the Reebok/AHL Goaltender of the Month this season – sharing the honor in October 2010 with Penguins teammate John Curry – and was the Reebok/AHL Player of the Week for the week ending Feb. 13. He was also voted the starting Eastern Conference goaltender at the 2011 AHL All-Star Classic but missed the event due to injury. Thiessen, whose record includes an 18-3-1 mark on the road, has not lost back-to-back decisions all season.

Congrats to Thiessen. He's certainly earned it. He turned himself into a legitimate prospect with his play this year. :thumb: Here's hoping to a great playoffs.
