SOUTHAVEN — The Central Hockey League announced recently that Memphis RiverKings goalie Larry Sterling has been named the Sher-Wood CHL Goalie of the Month for November. It is a repeat honor for Sterling, as he was also the recipient of the October Goalie of the Month award.
In November, the Lake Orion, MI native made nine appearances (all starts), had a record of 7-2-0, a 2.46 GAA, a .901 save percentage and a career-high matching five game winning streak. Beyond the numbers, Sterling made several big saves in crucial situations that helped the RiverKings to their second best November record in their history. He also notched his third career shutout in a 4-0 win at Corpus Christi on November 11.
Sterling becomes the first goalie to win the monthly award in back-to-back months since Colorado’s Tyler Weiman did it in December 2004 and January 2005.
For the season, Sterling is 9-2-2 with a 2.32 GAA and a .912 save percentage. His nine wins are tied for the league lead with his GAA third in the league. The RiverKings are second in the CHL in team GAA at 2.60.
