All about Jake Paterson

The Toledo Blade's Mark Monroe profiles Toledo Walleye goaltender Jake Paterson today:

The confidence of Walleye goaltender Jake Paterson continues to build as the young netminder has taken on the lion’s share of work between the pipes this season.

At 22, Paterson has nearly a season-and-a-half of pro hockey under his belt. The 6-foot-1, 183-pound goalie has started nine straight games for a Walleye team that is off to the best start in Toledo ECHL history.

“Playing every night is a good feeling,” Paterson said. “Any goalie wants to get in a rhythm and get on a roll. I just want to go out there and do all I can to help the team win.”

Paterson, a highly-regarded Detroit Red Wings prospect, has taken over as Toledo’s No. 1 goaltender. Paterson (16-5-1) is ranked second in the ECHL in wins and in shutouts with three this season.

Paterson is sixth among all netminders in goals-against average (2.45).

About The Malik Report

The Malik Report is a destination for all things Red Wings-related. I offer biased, perhaps unprofessional-at-times and verbose coverage of my favorite team, their prospects and developmental affiliates. I've joined the Kukla's Korner family with five years of blogging under my belt, and I hope you'll find almost everything you need to follow your Red Wings at a place where all opinions are created equal and we're all friends, talking about hockey and the team we love to follow.
