On Mar. 2 vs. Colorado, Dostal became the first goaltender in organizational history (NHL or AHL level) and the 16th goaltender in AHL history to score a goal in a game (17th including playoffs). He also stopped a career high 51-of-53 shots in the win. He was named the AHL Player of the Week (week ending Feb. 27), going 2-0-0 with a 1.01 GAA and .964 SV%, including his first career shutout Feb. 26 vs. Henderson (27 shots).
