    Cheveldave led all rookies in minutes played with 2,521, and faced 1,474 shots, another top number for a rookie.
    He played in 44 games for the Dragons this season, and posted a 2.90 goals against average and 91.72 save percentage, for a seventh spot ranking in the league. He had two shut outs this season in the span of seven days. He was selected as player of the game 14 times, and was the Source for Sports AJHL Player of the Week on December 6.
    He was a unanimous selection for the AJHL South Division All Rookies Team.
