Hermosa Beach native, Jr. Kings alum Sholl wins fourth ECHL weeky award of 2019-20 season
Idaho Steelheads goaltender Tomas Sholl has been named ECHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending Feb. 9.
It is the fourth time this season and the seventh time in his career that he has received the weekly honor. The seven weekly awards is the third most in ECHL history.
Sholl went 2-0-0 with one shutout, an 0.50 goals-against average and a save percentage of .983 in two appearances against the Utah Grizzlies last week, nearly identical to his last award earned in mid-December (2-0-0, 0.50 GAA, .980 SV%, 1 SHO).
The 25-year-old Hermosa Beach native stopped all 24 shots faced in a 4-0 win on Friday and made 34 saves in a 2-1 victory on Saturday.
Under contract to the AHL’s Texas Stars, the Los Angeles Jr. Kings alum is tied for the ECHL lead with 21 wins, leads the league with 1,982 minutes played, is tied for second with four shutouts, ranks third with 860 saves, is fourth with a 2.24 goals-against average and is sixth with a .921 save percentage.
