2013 Frozen Four: Hellebuyck learning well from goaltending mentors

UMass Lowell freshman goaltender Connor Hellebuyck (WPG) has been a big reason behind the River Hawks’ successful run into the Frozen Four. He currently leads the nation in several categories, including goals-against average (1.31) and save percentage (.953). His six shutouts are also tied for the most nationally.

Hockey’s Future spoke with Hellebuyck after practice on Wednesday at the Consol Energy Center in Pittsburgh, PA.

Hockey's Future: I know that it’s been quite a process for the team to get here to the Frozen Four. Can you talk a little about going through that process and how it has been for you personally?… read more

Wonder if Rolly's told him how the last 10 minutes of memories he'll ever have of professional hockey is Winnipeg fans is taunting the living daylights out of him.

HF: I know that you’re a prospect of the Winnipeg Jets. How does it feel to be a part of this organization, knowing that you could one day bring to them what you’ve brought to UMass Lowell so far?

CH: I can’t believe how great of an organization they really are. They treat every player so professionally and graciously. I feel that it’s an honor to have been drafted by them. They come around (to UMass Lowell) every once in awhile to say hello and just check in with me. It’s great to see them around because it shows that they care. And hopefully one day I can bring to them what I’m doing here as a goalie.
I'm glad they drop by frequently. I was worried after Lowry said he hadn't heard anything before signing with the 'Caps.

I know all prospects are different, but what's the average age for a goaltender to start becoming a regular in the NHL?

Hopefully he can become our version of Cory Schneider, since he went through the college system first, too, right?
