PRINCETON, N.J. – Alfie Michaud of the Utah Grizzlies is the Rbk Hockey ECHL Goaltender of the Week for February 13-19.
Michaud, who won the award for Nov. 7-14, becomes only the second two-time winner this season joining Alaska’s Chris Beckford-Tseu, who has won the award three times.
The 29-year-old was 2-0-0 with a shutout, a goals against of 1.00 and a save percentage of .962 to help the Grizzlies extend their winning streak to seven games while improving their record to 29-19-4.
After stopping 24 of 26 shots in a 4-2 win against Stockton on Feb. 15, the 5-foot-10 and 177-pound netminder made 28 saves in a 5-0 win at Las Vegas on Feb. 18 for his second shutout of the season. The Grizzlies are the only team this season to win twice at Las Vegas and only the second team this year to beat the Wranglers at home in regulation and Michaud has been in net for both of the wins. It was the 18th career professional shutout and 11th career ECHL shutout for Michaud, who led the league in 2004-05 with six shutouts.
