Former Thunderbirds standout Saville brings home another NCHC weekly award
The NCHC announced today that Omaha goalie Isaiah Saville is the Co-Goaltender of the Week.
Saville backstopped Omaha to a split at St. Lawrence over the weekend, allowing only three goals in the series and only one even strength.
On Friday, the Vegas Golden Knights draft pick made 26 saves in a 3-2 defeat, with two of SLU’s goals coming on the power play and all three coming in the final frame. The next night, Saville bounced back with a 21-save shutout in a 5-0 victory, his fourth shutout of the season and sixth of his career. He allowed goals in only one of six periods in the series.
Saville finished the road trip with a 1-1-0 record, a .940 save percentage and a 1.52 goals-against average, stopping 47 of 50 shots he faced.
This is Saville’s fifth NCHC Goaltender of the Week honor this season and second straight. He is now a six-time Goalie of the Week for his career and has eight career NCHC weekly accolades.
During his youth hockey career, Saville played for the Colorado Thunderbirds.
