Yale Frosh Earns 2nd ECAC Honor

ALBANY, N.Y. – Alex Lyon, who stopped 42 of 43 shots during a first-round playoff series sweep of Harvard on March 7 and 8, was named ECAC Hockey Goalie of the Week today.

Lyon, the Yale freshman from Baudette, Minn., stopped all 24 shots in a 4-0 win on Friday before halting 18 of 19 in a 2-1 victory in game two. This was his second conference weekly honor.

The Bulldog netminder currently ranks 18th in Division I with a 2.33 save percentage and 25th with a .922 save percentage.

Lyon, the Ivy League's co-rookie of the year, and the Elis face Quinnipiac this weekend in the conference quarterfinals.
