Kyle Hayton is ECAC Goaltender of the Week Again

"Dec. 16: St. Lawrence University sophomore goaltender Kyle Hayton was named ECAC Goaltender of the Week for the second time this season following a 41-save, 4-1 win over the University of Vermont on Saturday night.

Hayton's 41 saves were the most in the nation for a Division I goaltender in a single game last weekend and his .976 save percentage for the game ranked fourth nationally.

Hayton has helped the Saints to a 10-5-2 record at the season's midpoint, the best since the 2005-06 team went 11-5-1. The current Saint team is the only one beside that team to be in double digits in wins at the 17-game mark since 1998-99.

The Saints ranked 15th in the USCHO poll and14th in the USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine poll are 11th in the nation in scoring margin at 1.12 goals per game and are tied for ninth in scoring defense at 2.00 and are 16th in scoring offense at 3.12 goals per game. The Saint penalty kill is ranked 11th at 87.8 percent.
