Thorimbert wins SJHL rookie of the year

Josh Thorimbert, Kindersley Klippers

1992 G Josh Thorimbert (Saskatoon SK) accomplished something very few underage goalies are able to do in the Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League: lead a team to an above .500 finish in the regular season and have the club in position to contend for an SJHL championship. Thorimbert, who was still eligible to play in the Saskatchewan Midget AAA Hockey League this season, joined the Kindersley Klippers and, almost immediately, assumed the role of number one goalie. He finished the year 26-14-and-4 with a 2.66-GAA and a .917-SPCT. He was second overall in minutes played and wins. He finished third overall in goals against average and save percentage. He also had 1-shutout.
Runners-up: Trevor Cameron, Notre Dame & Marc-Andre Carre, La Ronge.

Trevor Cameron – 1992 F Trevor Cameron (Mission BC) was third in the league for rookie scoring with 18-goals and 28-assists in 51-games.

Marc-Andre Carre – 1991 F Marc-Andre Carre (Baie Comeau QC) came from nowhere and become a top scoring threat, ending the year with 21-goals and 22-assists in 43-games. He also had a midseason stint in the QMJHL.
