It was a game of firsts for Vancouver Giants goalie Ryan Kubic Saturday afternoon in Oregon. The 17-year-old from St. Andrews, Manitoba stopped all 34 shots he faced, earning his first-ever win and his first shutout in the Western Hockey League with a 2-0 victory over the Portland Winterhawks. Drafted in the second round of the 2013 Bantam Draft, Kubic had played in just three games in the WHL prior to this season, and was winless in 10 starts so far this year. But he was perfect against Portland, stopping everything the Winterhawks fired his way.

Kubic and the Giants would go on to defeat the Tigers 6-0. "Vancouver gave up precious few scoring opportunities, and, when they did, Ryan Kubic looked poised and polished in the Giants net. He made 33 saves for his second straight shutout." “Every game I get a little bit more comfortable. I think I’m getting used to the league and what it’s all about.” Kubic, who lost his first 10 decisions, on whether it was hard to wait for his first wins: “I don’t think it was easy or hard. It was just a matter of me allowing my game to come out and play.” To read more CLICK HEREKubic has been training with GDI for over 6 years through 1v1 lessons, GDI Summer Camps and the Total GDI Academy.______________________________________________________________________________________
