ECAC Hockey League Release

Quinnipiac University sophomore goaltender Bud Fisher (Peterborough, Ont.) has been named as ECAC Hockey League Goalie of the Week, as it was announced earlier today by the league office. Fisher helped the Bobcats to a weekend sweep of Robert Morris and carried shutout bids deep into the third period on both nights.

He stopped 69-of-71 (.972) shots on the weekend, including a career-high 43 saves on Friday night against the Colonials. Fisher followed that up with 26 saves in Saturday's win. Both of the goals that Fisher allowed on the weekend were power play markers - one was a 5-on-3 tally, another was a 4-on-3.
