Yorba Linda native, Jr. Kings native Nieto gloves weekly UCHC accolades


The UCHC has announced that Wilkes senior Garrett Nieto has been named the UCHC Men’s Goaltender of the Week.

The Yorba Linda native earned a key UCHC win for the Colonels Friday as he stopped 37 of 38 shots during a 2-1 victory at Nazareth. The Golden Flyers, who are receiving votes in the national poll, were unable to solve Nieto as he earned a .974 save percentage in the game. He made 16 of his 37 saves in the second period.

During his youth hockey days, Nieto starred for the Los Angeles Jr. Kings.
