Colorado youth hockey alum, Boulder product Blackburn pins down USPHL monthly honors


The USPHL has announced that San Diego Sabers goalie Ethan Blackburn is the Pacific Division Goaltender of the Month.

Starting his second year in the USPHL Premier, Blackburn, a 2002 birth year from Boulder, has played eight games so far this season and earned seven wins. Last year, he played 11 games with the Wisconsin Rapids Riverkings (where he posted a .929 save percentage) and Decatur Blaze.

This season looks to be his best one yet. With San Diego, he has faced 291 shots and earned 275 saves with a .945 save percentage, putting him in the top 10 for save percentage in the USPHL Premier.

Back in Colorado, Blackburn played for the Hyland Hills Jaguars, Boulder Hockey Club, Rocky Mountain RoughRiders, Monarch High School, and HTB.
