As for Andree, the Orleans native appeared in six games, starting five for the Barber Poles throughout the month of January, winning all of the five games he had started. Andree held a 2.00 goals against average and a save percentage of .925%. Andree also put up two shutouts for Ottawa during the month of January, earning him the Goaltender of the Month award for the second time this season.
The Barber Poles hit the ice on Friday night, when they will be hosting the Guelph Storm. Ottawa will be playing their second game in 24 hours on Saturday at 7 PM against the Niagara IceDogs in the Arena at TD Place.
