ROSEMONT, Ill. -- University of Michigan ice hockey freshman goaltender Zach Nagelvoort (Holland, Mich.) was named today (Tuesday, Nov. 5) as one of the Big Ten's Three Stars of the Week.
Nagelvoort earned second star honors after helping U-M earn a weekend series sweep of Michigan Tech (Nov. 1 and Nov. 2) at Yost Ice Arena. Nagelvoort was also honored last week by the Big Ten, earning third star honors on Oct. 29. Tyler Motte (Second Star, Oct. 20) and Andrew Copp (First Star, Oct. 13) have also earned Big Ten Weekly honors this season. Michigan is the only school to have student-athletes honored in all four weeks this season.
In two starts last weekend, Nagelvoort made 56 saves while posting a .949 save percentage and a 1.47 goals-against average (GAA) against the Huskies. On Friday night, Nagelvoort made 34 saves in a 3-2 OT win, matching his career high. On Saturday night, Nagelvoort stopped 21 of 22 shots in a 2-1 win over Michigan Tech, falling 12:05 short of his first career shutout. Nagelvoort currently ranks second in the nation in GAA (1.47) and third in save percentage (.948.)
Michigan is off this weekend before resuming play on the road with a two-game series at Nebraska-Omaha beginning on Nov. 15.
