Quinnipiac junior Bud Fisher (Peterborough, Ont.) has been named the ECAC Hockey Goaltender of the Week, as announced by the league office on Jan. 2, 2008. The award is Fisher’s third of his career.

This past weekend, at the 2007 Sheraton/TD Banknorth Catamount Cup, Fisher took home Most Valuable Player honors after Quinnipiac won the cup with back-to-back wins over Western Michigan, 2-1, and Vermont, 5-1.

For the year, Fisher has allowed 16 goals in 481:24 minutes over eight games for a 1.99 goals-against-average. With 180 saves on 196 shots-on-goal, Fisher also boasts a .918 save percentage. Fisher currently ranks 12th nationally in GAA and 26th in save percentage.

  1. Hey David! Just popping over here to thank you for your encouraging comments lately during our time of transition. I really appreciate your taking the time to comment and to wave, too, while passing through my area! :) Oh, was wondering if the reason you were here on the 1st was because of the big outdoor hockey game? I enjoyed hearing about it afterward on tv... one of the security guards said he'd never seen so many happy people in one place before... Loved that. Buffalo really loves its sports and has such a small hometown feeling--a couple things we've enjoyed about it all these years. Anyway, thanks again so much for stopping by! Blessings, Debra
