Rimmer combined for 64 saves in his two shutout wins including a 42-save performance last Wednesday as first star of a 5-0 victory over the Moose Jaw Warriors.  He then picked up his league-leading fifth shutout of the season on Saturday with 22 saves as third star of a 4-0 win over the Everett Silvertips.  The Americans have now won 13 straight games and are the WHL’s top ranked team with a 32-7-0-0 record for 64 points.

Rimmer, a 19-year-old from Edmonton, AB, is playing in his second full WHL season and first with the Americans.  With a 19-4-0-0 record, he carries the league’s best goals-against-average and save percentage with marks of 1.85 and .938 respectively.
