Jacob Ingham keeps on piling up the wins.
A day after setting the franchise record for wins, the Mississauga Steelheads goaltender turned aside 39 shots in a 9-4 thumping of the London Knights, Feb. 18, at the Paramount Fine Foods Centre.
Ingham, who now has 57 career wins, moved ahead of former Mississauga goalie Spencer Martin with a 4-3 road win, Feb. 17, against the North Bay Battalion.
It’s the most by a Steelheads goaltender since the team transitioned from the Majors brand at the outset of the 2012-13 season.
The Barrie native has a career record of 57-47-5-7, with a 3.27 goals against average and .893 save percentage. Ingham has a career-high 24 wins this season, with a 3.27 goals against average and .896 save percentage.
After giving up two goals midway through the first period, Ingham and the Steelheads scored four straight and never looked back against the Knights.
Aidan Prueter scored a pair to lead the way for Mississauga (29-21-5-2), which has won six of its last seven games.
Alan Lyszczarczyk, Duncan Penman, Cole Carter, Nick Isaacson, Nick McHugh, Cole Schwindt and Keean Washkurak also scored for the Steelheads.
Kevin Hancock, with a pair, Connor McMichael and Liam Foudy scored for the Western Conference-leading Knights (39-10-6-1), who have just two wins in their last six games.
The Steelheads return to action on Feb. 22, when they hit the road to take on the Oshawa Generals. Game time is 7:35 p.m.
