Chubak finds a zone in goal for Atlantic Hockey-leading Niagara
By Chris Lerch • Atlantic Hockey Columnist • Nov. 8, 2012
In what is already turning into an another “on any given night” season, Niagara has managed to fly above the fray, opening 3-0 in league play after beating contenders Connecticut and Mercyhurst by a combined score of 10-1.
Most of the damage inflicted by the Purple Eagles was last weekend, when they beat the Huskies 3-0 and 5-0. “Friday was a closer game [than 3-0] and Saturday we really played well,” Niagara coach Dave Burkholder said. “It all starts and ends with Carsen [Chubak].”
The junior goalie had back-to-back shutouts and already has three on the season. He’s currently first in the nation in save percentage (.962) and second in goals against average (1.23). “He’s in a zone right now, both in games and in practice,” Burkholder said.
