Belleville Senators goaltender Filip Gustavsson has been named the CCM/AHL Goaltender of the Month for January.

The Swedish netminder put up a 4-0-1 record with a 1.78 GAA and a .942 save percentage in five starts. He also recorded his first career AHL shutout Jan. 20 in a 3-0 win in Rockford.

Gustavsson stopped 28 shots in a 5-3 win over Lehigh Valley on Jan. 4, his only home appearance of the month. He came back with 35 saves in a 5-1 victory at Rochester on Jan. 10, and turned aside 34 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss at Manitoba on Jan. 15. Gustavsson made 23 saves in the win at Rockford and registered 26 stops in the Senators’ 5-2 win at Utica on Jan. 24.

The 21-year-old is 12-5-2 in 19 appearances for Belleville this season, with a 3.24 GAA, an .891 save percentage and one shutout. In 57 AHL games with Belleville, he’s posted a record of 26-25-4. The Skelleftea, Sweden, native won a silver medal with Sweden and was named the tournament’s top goaltender at the 2018 IIHF World Junior Championship.
