To expand on that, Pickard currently holds the WHL record for most career saves.

Vancouver, B.C. – Calvin Pickard of the Seattle Thunderbirds became the WHL’s All-Time leader in career saves on Sunday night in Vancouver, B.C.

The 19-year-old from Winnipeg, MB, stopped 42 of 45 shots he faced in a 3-2 setback to the Giants, giving him 6,959 career saves, eclipsing the previous long-held record of 6,958 saves set by former Thunderbirds netminder Danny Lorenz (1986-1990).
