Hermosa Beach’s Sholl commits to NCAA D-I Bemidji State, chosen USHL Goaltender of the Week



Hermosa Beach native and former Los Angeles Jr. Kings goaltender Mattias Sholl has announced his commitment to attend and play his NCAA Division I hockey at Bemidji State University for the 2021-22 season.

This season, the 2000-born goaltender is playing the 2020-21 season for the USHL’s Youngstown Phantoms. In 12 appearances, Sholl is 3-8-0 with a 3.43 GAA and a .894 save percentage. His 340 saves rank third in the league.

Last season as a member of the NAHL’s Fairbanks Ice Dogs, Sholl was named to the All-NAHL Second Team and recognized as the NAHL’s Midwest Division Most Valuable Player. He was also named to the All-Midwest Division Team and the division’s Goaltender of the Year.

In 41 appearances, Sholl compiled a NAHL-leading 29 wins (29-8-0-1-2 record overall), including three shutouts, to go with a 1.99 GAA (ranking seventh in the league) and .924 save percentage (eighth).

Bemidji State is competing this season in the WCHA and will join the new CCHA for the 2021-22 season.

Also this week, Sholl was tabbed the USHL Goaltender of the Week.

Sholl had a great week between the pipes for the Phantoms, including a pair of wins while pushing aside 81 of the 87 shots he faced in his three appearances.

He made 27 saves in a Friday night win over the Dubuque Fighting Saints before allowing just one goal on 31 shots the next night as the Phantoms swept the back-to-back series over the Fighting Saints.

Although the winning weekend came to a close on Sunday thanks to the Steel, Sholl still stopped 24 shots.

He finished the weekend with a 2.01 GAA and a .931 save percentage.
