On Nov. 16, 2018, Ian Scott scored the only goal by a goaltender in Raiders’ history with an empty-net marker in a 3-1 win over the Tri-City Americans at the Art Hauser Centre.
Scott, a Calgary, AB product, was the eighth goaltender to score in WHL history. Along with the goal, Scott stopped 23 of 24 shots to pick up the win and first star honours.
The goaltender was drafted ninth overall in the 2014 WHL Bantam Draft. Over four seasons with the Raiders, he made 175 appearances and posted an 87-64-9-5 record with a 2.90 goals-against average (GAA) and a 0.905 save percentage (SV%). His 11 career shutouts are second in team history, trailing just Rejean Beauchemin’s 12 from 2002 to 2005.
Scott’s best season was his final year with the Raiders, compiling a 38-8-1-2 record in 49 games played. He set single-season records with a 1.83 GAA, a 0.932 SV%, and eight shutouts. Scott was the recipient of the Orland Kurtencbach Award Presented By Lake Country Co-op as Most Valuable Player that season, as well as earning the 2019 WHL Playoffs MVP Award and the 2019 CHL Goaltender of the Year Award.
