Brett Bennett Is USHL Goalie Of The Week

Goaltender Brett Bennett who recently committed to the University of Wisconsin has been named the USHL goaltender of the week. There has been a ton of drama surrounding the goaltending recruiting situation at Wisconsin lately. If Bennett keeps putting up weeks like this hopefully it will ease all of our minds.

Press Release

Bennett had another sparkling week in net for Indiana, helping them win a pair of games. On Wednesday, he made 23 saves in a 4-0 shutout win over Des Moines, his second shutout of the year. Then on Friday he stopped 33 shots in a 3-1 win over East Divsion leading Cedar Rapids. He was 2-0-0 with a 0.50 goals against average and a .982 save percentage for the week.

Honorable Mention - Michael Houser (DM), Mike Lee (FAR), Jeff Teglia (OMA)

Also in goaltender recruiting news, D-playa has videos up of the 10 goals against night that Aaron Crandall had the other day. All I have to say is, wow...Des Moines looks like my pee wee team.
