Daws is Dominant Nicholas (or Nico) Daws does not have a household name yet. But if he continues to play at this high of a level, he just might change that. The 18-year-old goaltender for the Guelph Storm of the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) is far and away the best goaltender in his league right now. https://twitter.com/Storm_City/status/1188556740998172672?s=20 The first-year starter just notched his second shutout of the season (no other goalie has more than one), and is leading the league in goals against average (GAA, 2.30) and save percentage (SV%, .938).
