Boucher went 2-0-1 during the week stopping 65 of 68 shots (.956 save percentage) and posting a 1.21 goals against average. The Leduc, Alberta native earned his second shutout of the season last Wednesday versus Dayton as he stopped all 27 shots he faced in the 1-0 win. He then entered Friday's game in relief of Kevin Reiter with his team trailing 5-2 but finished with 12 saves and kept his team alive eventually losing in overtime. He then followed that performance up with a 26-save jewel in the Komets season finale, a 2-1 win over Colorado on Saturday night.
