This year I thought it would be cool to give out a weekly players of the week for each series/weekend UK plays this season. This past weekend saw the season get off to a fast start with the team going 2-0 against Akron, and outscoring them 16-1.
There were a lot of deserving players with so many goals scored, with many players (14 by my count but will double check when the ACHA posts the official stats) recorded at least 1 point in the two games. But I chose to go the other way, with the two guys in net.
This week’s UK Hockey Report Players of the Week go to goalies Jeff Ison and Eric Williams. Jeff only gave up one goal in the season opener and Williams recorded his first career ACHA shutout. The team played great defense in front of them, but when called upon to make a stop, these two did in a big way.
Congratulations to Ison and Williams, the week one Players of the Week.
