Coming off of yesterday’s 4-0 shutout of the Iowa Wild we get some more good news. Scott Darling was just announced as the CCM/AHL Player of the Week.

I made mention in yesterday’s game recap how outstanding his entire month of December has been. This past week just about sums up how good it has been for Darling: 2-0-0-0 record, stopped 65/66 shots on goal, 0.985 SV%, and a 0.45 GAA.

Something tells me we’re not done with this story either. I imagine he’ll be in the discussion for December’s Player of the Month award as well. Expect a post for that if it goes down.

What has impressed you the most about Scott Darling? What do you think is going right for him versus Magnus Hellberg at the moment? Going forward, should we expect more games and more results like this month for Darling?

  1. I’ve seen too many hot goalies , but for short periods of time like Smith and Helberg. We will wait and see if he can sustain this for the season long stretch. I see Nashville’s prospects are young and in Sweden , so we have to use what we have. I feel Pekkas problems will continue for the entire season, this infection takes time and even after he is heeled , it takes time to get back to playing shape.
