The Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference has announced that Gustavus junior goaltender Josh Swartout (St. Louis Park, Minn.) has been named the Men’s Hockey Player of the Week for his sterling performances against St. Thomas last weekend.
Swartout turned in two outstanding performances to help the Gusties sweep St. Thomas in a key MIAC series last weekend. Swartout registered 31 saves and recorded his first shutout of the season in Friday’s 4-0 win in Mendota Heights and then he turned away 20 shots and allowed one goal in Saturday’s 7-1 win in St. Peter.
Swartout is now 4-1-1 in league play with a 2.44 goals against average and a .903 save percentage. The Gusties are currently in first place in the MIAC with a record of 4-1-1.
