Toronto, Ont. – The Ontario Hockey League today announced that Spirit goaltender and New York Islanders prospect Tristan Lennox was a runner-up for the Jim Rutherford Trophy (Goaltender of the Year) presented by Real Canadian Superstore. North Bay Battalion goaltender Dom DiVincentiis won the award, while Lennox tied with Brett Brochu (London) as the runner-up.
In his overage season, Lennox saved some of his best performances for last. The Cambridge, Ont. native saw more action this past season than any of his career, making 45 regular season and 11 playoff appearances in 2022-2023. His 25 wins were also a career-high, and 6th most by a Spirit goaltender in one season.

His final season saw a record of 25-15-4 with a 3.15 GAA and .888 SV%. Lennox was also a key contributor in the postseason, sporting a 2.64 GAA and .908 SV% in 11 playoff games.
Lennox finished his Spirit career 5th in games played (121), 5th in wins (59), and tied for 3rd in shutouts (4).
