TROY, N.Y. – ECAC Hockey has announced its weekly award winners from men’s hockey and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) student-athlete Linden Marshall was named MAC Goaltender of the Week.
A sophomore from Victoria, B.C., Marshall went 2-0-0 with a 2.50 goals against average and a .932 save percentage against the Dutchmen last weekend, stopping 68 of 73 in the two contests. He made 32 saves in a 5-3 come-from-behind win on Friday at the Houston Field House, before stopping 36 in a 4-2 win in Schenectady on Saturday. On the penalty kill, he stopped 24 of 25 Union shots, as the Engineers killed off 13 of 14 chances.

A former standout with the Trail Smoke Eaters, he has 149 saves on 164 shots in 277:21 minutes between the pipes. He has at least 29 saves in all but one game this season.
In 34 career games at RPI, Marshall is 7-23-2 with a 3.18 goals against average and a .905 save percentage. He earned both Rookie of the Week and Goaltender of the Week honors last season, helping the Engineers to victory over then-No. 1 Cornell on February 3 (2-1). He picked up his first collegiate shutout in a 1-0 win at Colgate on March 3 in Hamilton, N.Y.
