Veteran London Knights netminder Joseph Raaymakers reached the century mark on Thursday, becoming the sixth goaltender in OHL history to join the 100-win club.
Raaymakers made 23 saves, helping the London Knights take a 7-3 road win over the Windsor Spitfires to improve to 31-7-5-1 atop the Midwest Division. The fifth-year native from Chatham, Ont. earned his 100th win in his 170th career regular season game to improve to 21-4-3-1 on the campaign with a 2.78 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage.
The 20-year-old becomes the first OHL goaltender to hit the milestone since Erie’s Devin Williams did so during the 2015-16 season. Other members of the OHL’s 100-win club include all-time wins leader JP Anderson (Mississauga/Sarnia, 126), Kyle Gajewski (Sault Ste. Marie, 114), Jim Ralph (Ottawa, 107) and Adam Dennis (Guelph/London, 100).
Raaymakers attended training camp with the Columbus Blue Jackets this past September, appearing in an NHL exhibition game. The 6-foot-1, 186Ib netminder was originally Sault Ste. Marie’s second round pick in the 2014 OHL Priority Selection from the Chatham-Kent Cyclones Minor Midgets. He owns a 100-47-10-4 record with a 3.11 goals-against average, .900 save percentage and seven shutouts over 170 career OHL contests.
