Jeff Zatkoff Named Goalie of the Month

This one came out of left field to me because I thought Abbotsford’s Barry Brust was a shoo-in for this award but Wilkes-Barre / Scranton’s Jeff Zatkoff was named the AHL’s Goaltender of the Month Monday afternoon.

Barry Brust broke a 55-year old AHL record earlier in the month when he did not allow a goal for 268 minutes and 17 seconds. The old record was 249:51 established in 1957. 55 years! Pretty impressive.

Brust appeared in five games, with a 0.59 GAA and a 0.976 SV% and went 5-0.

Zatkoff went 8-1 in nine games, with a 1.21 GAA and a 0.955 SV% and help re-establish the Penguins as one of the elite teams in the AHL.

You couldn’t go wrong either way in the selection.

This just in to the Chirps from Center Ice news desk…

And to think I wouldn’t have fodder this week…
