Klein Earns NESCAC Player of the Week Honors

Middlebury men's hockey player Stephen Klein (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) has been named the NESCAC Player of the Week. The rookie was stellar in goal as Middlebury earned wins over #3 Plattsburgh and #2 Norwich last week. The rookie made 19 saves on Friday night as the Panthers topped the Cardinals 3-1 on the road. On Saturday, he made 25 stops to earn his first career shutout as the Panthers downed the Cadets, 3-0. Klein also helped the Middlebury penalty-kill unit kill off all nine power plays faced over the weekend.

He now ranks second in the league with a 2.09 GAA and a .930 save percentage. The Panthers return to action this weekend when they host Bowdoin on Friday at 7:00 p.m. and Colby at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday.
