Guggenberger Named Oakley/CHL Goaltender of the Week

Brahmas rookie goaltender went 4-0-0 with three shutouts

The Central Hockey League announced today that Mark Guggenberger has been named the Oakley/Central Hockey League Goaltender of the Week for the period ending February 19, 2012.

The Richfield, Minnesota native has been not only unbeatable lately, but teams have also found it nearly impossible to even get a puck past him. Last week, Guggenberger went 4-0 with three shutouts and set a CHL record with 238:31 consecutive scoreless minutes in the process. In the four games in five nights, Guggenberger allowed only one goal.

His first professional shutout came on Tuesday behind 26 saves in a 4-0 victory over Allen. The scoreless minute streak continued with a 27-save effort at home against the Dayton Gems and then continued on Friday with Guggenberger’s third consecutive shutout in a 1-0 win over Rio Grande Valley.

The streak for Guggenberger ended 3:15 into the second period of Saturday’s 2-1 win over Rio Grande Valley.

The winner of the 2012 CHL All-Star Game is 15-4-3 on the season with a league-leading 1.88 goals against average and a league-leading .929 save percentage.
