Union's Sakellaropoulos named ECAC Hockey goalie of the week
Union senior Alex Sakellaropoulos was named ECAC Hockey goalie of the week on Tuesday.
Sakellaropoulos helped the 15th-ranked Dutchmen (6-1-1 ECAC Hockey, 10-3-2 overall) to their third league weekend sweep. He made 27 saves in Friday’s 7-3 win at Princeton, and then followed that up with a career-high 52-save performance in Saturday’s 5-2 victory at Quinnipiac. Sakellaropoulos became the first Union goalie to make over 50 saves in a game since Keith Kinkaid stopped 52 shots in the 3-2, five-overtime loss to Quinnipiac in Game 1 of the ECACH tournament quarterfinals March 12, 2010.
It's the second time that Sakellaropoulos has won the goalie of the week award this season.
