Senior Earns 2nd ECAC Award This Year
ALBANY, N.Y. - Yale goalie Ryan Rondeau (Carvel, AB), who stopped 58 of 61 shots to earn a pair of road wins last weekend at Dartmouth and Harvard, was named ECAC Hockey Goalie of the Week for the second time this season.
Rondeau, a senior who had a 141:29 scoreless streak and consecutive shutouts (first time for a Yalie since 1998) in December, made 32 saves in each game. He stopped numerous odd-man rushes and grade-A chances while enjoying one of his best weekends as a collegiate player.
Rondeau, who was ECAC Goalie of the Week on Dec. 6 (30 saves, Union; 15, RPI), is 13-0 this season. He currently ranks second in GAA (1.74) and fourth in SP (.936) in Division I.
Nine of the 22 goals he has allowed this year came on the man-advantage. Rondeau, who owns a 19-4-1 career record, has been in net for six wins over ranked teams including a 3-2 decision with North Dakota at the 2010 NCAA Northeast Regional semifinal.
