Hobart College first-year Tim Keegan (Lexington, Mass.) was named the ECAC West Goalie of the Week as announced by the conference office late yesterday. In addition, sophomore Ben Gamache (Longlac, Ontario) and first-year Mitch Beyer (Clifton Park, N.Y.) earned spots on the league’s weekly honor roll.

 

Keegan played all 60 minutes in goal in a 5-1 win over Nazareth on Saturday afternoon. He stopped 35 of the 36 shots he faced. It was Keegan’s first collegiate victory and he established a career-high in saves. He is now 1-1-1 in goal this year. Keegan has played in four games and is sporting a 2.15 goals against average and a .926 save percentage this season.

 

Gamache shared a team-high with three points on a goal and two assists in Saturday’s victory. He scored what proved to be the game-winning goal on a power play and then added two assists. Gamache has produced eight goals and 11 assists for 19 points this season. He ranks second in the ECAC West with six power-play goals and is tied for second with 10 power-play points. Gamache is also tied for ninth in the league in goals, tied for 11th in points and assists and tied for second with three short-handed points this season.

 

Beyer also had a team-high with three points on a goal and two assists last weekend. On Friday night, he notched a goal and an assist. In Saturday’s victory, Beyer assisted on Hobart’s third goal. He has logged four goals and three assists for seven points this season. Beyer is tied for 13th in the ECAC West in first-year scoring and tied for 15th in defenseman scoring.

 

The Statesmen will be back in action on Saturday, Feb. 8, when they host Elmira for another ECAC West contest at The Cooler at 7 p.m. At Saturday’s game, Colleges Against Cancer will be holding a fundraiser for Relay for Life. For a $2 donation, fans can make a snowman out of construction paper which will be donated to an assisted living center. The goal is to not only raise money but to increase awareness for the Relay for Life which will be held at the end of March.
