He is ranked second in the NCAA in GAA at 1.47, and third in save percentage at .948

  • 11/5- Zach Nagelvoort (Second Star)

Michigan moved to #2 in both polls this week. They have a bye this week and will travel to omaha to play nebraska-omaha in a weekend series. The friday game will be on CBS Sports Network while the Saturday game can be heard on MGoBlueTV.

In a season that has been full of pleasant surprises thus far, Nagelvoort has a good claim to be the best one early on.  Obviously he has a long way to go, but his goaltending has been absolutely stellar and has made the difference in several 1-goal victories.  If he continues playing at this level, the battle will be on in earnest with Racine once the latter returns from injury.  Good problems to have!
