SteelStats: Landon Bow

Landon Bow burst onto the professional scene in 2016-17. Landon earned his first NHL contract, saw substantial playing time in AHL Texas, and had one of the best seasons by a Steelheads rookie goaltender ever.

Let’s take a deeper look at the numbers for “Bowser” last season:

2.08 – Landon Bow had the league’s best goals-against average last season, eking out ECHL Goaltender of the Year, Riley Gill. Bow’s goals-against average was the lowest by a Steelheads rookie goaltender (20 or more games played) in franchise history, and bested only by NHL first-round pick Jack Campbell’s 1.68 goals-against average in 20 games with Idaho in 2015-16. Bow held opponents to two goals or fewer in 17 of his 27 regular-season starts, including 11 of his last 14.

.933 – Again Bow found himself near the very top of the league rankings, this time seeing his save percentage edged by Gill by just .002 for the top spot. Bow’s mark was again the best by a Steelheads rookie (20 or more games played) and again topped only by Jack Campbell’s .944 mark in 20 games last season.

0 – Bow began his career with a penchant for shutouts, having recorded seven in his last year of junior hockey between Swift Current and Seattle and having pitched 15 in four seasons in the WHL. Bow led the WHL in his final two seasons. As a Steelhead, Bow maintained his reputation with three shutouts, tied for sixth in the league with teammate Branden Komm. Bow stopped 43 shots to blank the Grizzlies, 27 to quiet the Rush, and another 27 to stop the Aces in his final game of the regular season. Perhaps most impressive for Bow, the margin for error was razor thin with all three wins coming on the road and all by a 1-0 score.

6 – Landon Bow was named the goaltender for the ECHL’s All-Rookie Team, an honor shared by just five other players in Steelheads ECHL history – Jason Bast, William Rapuzzi, Kael Mouillierat, Richard Bachman, and Frank Doyle. Bow joined Bachman and Doyle as the only Steelheads goaltenders to be selected.

43 – Bow made 43 saves on February 20th in Utah, a shutout win and the only game last year in which he was required to stop more than 40 shots. Bow made 19 of those saves in the second period and 15 in the first, making Kellan Lain’s second period tally hold up as the only offense in the game.

8/8 – Landon Bow and Branden Komm may have solidified themselves as the top breakaway goaltending tandem in the league last year with their shootout performances. Bow was 2-0 in shootouts last year and stopped all eight breakaways he faced, again getting the job done on the road with wins in Colorado and Utah.
