A tough season for the Trinity Western Spartans would have been even worse if not for the play of goaltender Tim Zwiers.

Despite the Spartans missing the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League playoffs with a 4-15-3 record, Zwiers was named the league's top goalie when they handed out their year-end awards on March 13.

He was also a first team all-star.

Zwiers, a second-year player, had a 3.86 goals against average and a .896 save percentage. He faced 577 shots, third most in the league.

His record was 2-10-3 with one shutout.

Prior to joining the Spartans, Zwiers spent time in the Western Hockey League with the Calgary Hitmen and the Kelowna Rockets.
