Minnesota Wild goaltender Devan Dubnyk posted his league-leading 4th shutout of the season on Thursday night in Minnesota's win over Boston.

Dubnyk isn't only leading the way in shutouts, he also leads the league in goals-against average and save percentage.

League leader

Entering play on Friday, Dubnyk has posted a 1.48 GAA and .952 SV% – both of those figures are ahead of perennial All-Star goalies, Braden Holtby, Tukka Rask and Carey Price.

Elite company

Those three goalies have each won the Veznia Trophy award too, which is the award given to the best goaltender. Dubnyk was named to his first All-Star Game last season and is well on track for another.

Always consistent

In Dubnyk's 13 starts this season, he's allowed 2 goals or less in 10 of those starts.

Although the Wild have struggled to score goals lately – scoring 2 goals or less in all but one game this month – they've still posted the best goal differential in the Western Conference because of Dubnyk's stellar play.

Even when the offense goes quiet, clearly Dubnyk has provided them the luxury of giving his team more than a chance to win every night.
