(1090 The Fan) — Danny Mumaugh got the start between the pipes for Seattle, Tuesday night as the team continues to alternate its goaltenders. Mumaugh had 30 saves on 32 attempts in the win over Brandon, upping his record to 5-1-0-2 on the season.
“He’s been solid for us every game,” Seattle head coach Steve Konowalchuk said of his goaltender, Tuesday. “He played another good game and we were able to get the lead because he came out strong and he held the fort down for us.”
Mumaugh, 17, is the younger of the two goalies. He’s played in eight games this season for the T-Birds, posting a .920 save percentage. Meanwhile, Justin Myles, has played in nine games and has posted a .905 save percentage.
Myles, 18, seems to be drawing the tougher assignments thus far. He started opening night against Portland, has faced the Winterhawks twice already this season, as well as two games against Tri-City and a game against B.C. Division-leading Kelowna.
Both goalies are playing well, and thus, give coach Konowalchuk a pretty good luxury as the season moves forward.
Green Makes Return To ShoWare
Tuesday’s game against Brandon marked the return of former Seattle Thunderbirds’ defenseman Taylor Green. Green was acquired by the Wheat Kings on August 15th for a 2014 conditional fifth-round Bantam draft pick.
The most notable part of Green’s return was his involvement in multiple fights. He dropped the gloves with Justin Hickman late in the second period and then again with Jared Hauf as time wound down in the third.
So far on the season, Green has one assist in 11 games for Brandon after posting two goals and five assists in 65 games with Seattle as a WHL rookie last season.
