The SHL selected Saskatchewan Shockers G Zeke Zagurski as its Player of the Week. Zagurski had a tremendous week in net for the Shockers, going 3-0-1 with a 0.73 GAA and a .976 save percentage. With Zagurski leading the way, the Shockers posted a 3-1-1 record on the week, better than any other team in the West. For the season, Zagurski stands at 12-18-3, with a 2.52 GAA and a .917 save percentage.
On Saturday, Zagurski made 28 saves to outduel Riki Tiktuunen and the Quebec Tigres, 2-1. On Tuesday, he stopped all 37 Washington shots as the Shockers knocked off the Galaxy 1-0. On Friday, Zagurski made 29 stops as Saskatchewan rolled to a 10-1 thrashing of New York.
“One of these days, people are going to realize that Zeke is one of the league’s best netminders,” said Shockers interim coach Caleb Ponder. “He doesn’t get enough credit because we don’t win enough games, but when we finally make it to the playoffs and make some noise, the world will finally recognize Zeke’s greatness.”
