Since goaltender Joni Ortio dazzled for the ECHL's Alaska Aces early in the season, he's been up with the club's AHL affiliate, the Abbotsford Heat, where he's continued the conquer.

The guy hasn't lost yet in the AHL this season.

Ortio on Tuesday made 37 saves in a 4-3 overtime win at Milwaukee to pump his AHL record to 8-0-0. He owns a 2.54 goals-against average and .921 save percentage.

For the Aces, Ortio went 3-1-0 with two shutouts, a 1.01 and .944.
