ALBANY, NY – After a dominant performance on the road at then-No. 3 ranked North Dakota, junior Jake Kupsky was named ECAC Hockey's Goaltender of the Week, the league announced Tuesday.
The Waukesha, WI, native helped Union earn a win and a tie on the road against the Fighting Hawks, making 64 saves for a .955 save percentage and a 1.44 goals-against average over the two games.
In Friday's contest, Kupsky turned aside 37 shots to help Union claim its second win over a nationally-ranked opponent this season with a 4-1 decision against North Dakota. He then stopped 27-of-29 the following night as North Dakota battled back to force a 2-2 tie.
With the undefeated weekend, Kupsky is now 2-0-1 in his last three starts, helping Union go undefeated in nine of its last 10 games.
The weekly award is the first for the junior goalie of the season, and is the second for the Dutchmen after Ryan Scarfo was named Player of the Week on Oct. 24.
Union College returns home to Messa Rink this weekend, Dec. 1-2, to host Brown and Yale.
