Alex Lyon named ECAC goalie of the week

ALBANY, NY – Yale goalie Alex Lyon earned his second conference goalie of the week honor after helping his hockey team earn three points last weekend.
The sophomore from Baudette, Minn., was named ECAC Goalie of the Week today. He stopped 60 of 62 shots combined on Feb. 6 and 7, including his school record sixth career shutout.
Lyon stopped all 31 shots on Jan. 30 in Yale’s first shutout against Princeton since 1971. The next night against nationally ranked Quinnipiac, Lyon made 29 saves and did not allow a goal on four advantages.
His first ECAC goalie of the week honor came in November after the Dartmouth/Harvard trip. Those two teams come to the Whale this weekend for Alumni Weekend.

The Bulldog goalie ranks second in the nation in goals against (1.59) while he is third in save percentage (.941).
