The run that Thatcher Demko has been on in the month of March has been nothing short of incredible, but you didn’t just need me to tell you that to know that it’s true.
Demko sports an 8-3 record and a .937 save percentage so far this month — .949 if you just include 5v5 play. His 9.67 goals saved above average (GSAA) at even strength is far and away the best in the NHL during that period. In fact, his even-strength GSAA in March is two goals better than Vezina front-runner Andrei Vasilevsky.
It’s been so good that he’s (in my opinion) in the conversation for player of the month in the NHL.
