Solid as a Rock in net

December 23, 2021

Timmins Rock is atop the overall standings of the Northern Ontario Jr. Hockey League with 48 points in 30 games and an .800 winning percentage from a record of 23-5-2. And as the Rock can light it up offensively, its goals against average of 2.36 is the best in the 12-team NOJHL.

Veteran goalie Gavin McCarthy and his rookie sidekick backup Konrad Simard have combined to give Timmins a solid as a Rock net duo.

Simard, meanwhile, has come through when called upon by Timmins coach-general manager Brandon Perry. The 18-year old rookie has a 6-0-0 record with a 1.50 goals against average, .912 save percentage and two shutouts.

Of note, Simard is from the small First Nation Cree community of Ouje-Bougoumou, Quebec, which has a population of 900 residents. Ouje-Bougoumou is about 400 miles north of Timmins.
