Aldergrove's Brad Thiessen will be minding the net for the Wilkes-Barre Scanton Penguins when they take on the Abbotsford Heat

Following an injury to start the month of February, Brad Thiessen made up for lost time when he returned to the line-up.

Thiessen was named the American Hockey League’s goaltender of the month for February after an impressive run saw him go 8-2 while allowing just a dozen goals for the Wilkes-Barre Scanton Penguins, the top minor league team of the Pittsburgh Penguins.

The Aldergrove goaltender finished the month with a tidy 1.28 goals against average and a .943 save percentage. He also posted three shutouts.

Thiessen leads the AHL with 26 wins and a 1.90 GAA.

The Penguins will be in Abbotsford to play the Heat next weekend (March 11 and 12) in a two-game set.
