Salavat Yulaev wins again, Boucher scores two for Lo. September 18 round-up18 September 2021, 21:10
To mark the end of the seventh month’s play in the KHL Championship 2011/2012 season, the KHL has named the best players of March in four categories:
– Best goaltender was Michael Garnett (Traktor). In March he played in 13 games, 8 of which were victories for his team. Garnett achieved one shutout, allowed 1.85 goals per game and saved 93.5% of shots on his goal;
– Best defenseman was Ilya Gorokhov (Dynamo Moscow). In 11 outings he scored 2 goals, assisted on 4 more and merited an efficiency rating for the month of +3;
– Best attacker was Vladimir Tarasenko (SKA), whose haul from 12 games was 8 goals, 5 assists and a rating for the month of +9;
Owing to fewer games being played in March, none of the players eligible for consideration spent enough time on the ice to accrue meaningful statistical results, and so there will be no best rookie award for the month.
