WEST VALLEY CITY -- The ECHL announced today that Utah Grizzlies Goaltender Andrew Engelage is the Reebok Hockey ECHL Goaltender of the Week for October 24-30.
Engelage went 3-0 last week as the Grizzlies improved to a league leading 6-1 on the season. He stopped 71 of 74 shots overall, had one shutout and a .959 save percentage.
Engelage stopped 32-straight shots as Utah opened the week with a 3-0 win at Pacific Division leading Las Vegas on Tuesday. As the Grizzlies returned home for a 1 vs. 2 ECHL showdown with Alaska, the 23-year-old stopped 15 of 17 Aces shots in a 3-2 Utah win Friday. Saturday, he again held a shutout going down the stretch before Alaska scored in the final two minutes to make the score 2-1. Engelage stopped 24 of 25 shots in that game.
Engelage takes a personal five-game winning streak and a 5-1 record into this weekend's action in Stockton. He has a 1.83 goals-against-average and a .928 save percentage overall.
Last year, Engelage was named the league's goaltender of the week twice as he led Utah to 19 regular season wins.
