Last weekend, the Northern Pacific Hockey League was back in full swing as every team hit the ice for the third to last weekend of the regular season. During this packed weekend, the league saw exceptional goalie play from every team.
Despite all of these great performances, only one player can take home the NPHL’s Goalie of the Week award. For this award, the NPHL heads to Wenatchee, Washington, for a closer look at the Wenatchee Wolves. The NPHL’s goalie of the week is Bronson Moore.
Last weekend, Moore faced 31 total shots against the Bellingham Blazers, and he stopped all but one. His performance helped push the Wolves to a 6 – 1 victory over the Blazers. But this wasn’t Moore’s only strong performance. In fact, he has been one of the league’s best goalies since the start of the season.
Moore has played in 17 games this season. During these 17 games, he has racked up 17 wins, six of which were shutouts. He has also accumulated the league’s best goals against average (GAA). Moore has allowed only 17 goals in 17 games, which gives him a GAA of 1.0.
Ryan McKelvie, the Wolves’ head coach, commented on Moore’s performance over the past weekend and his progression throughout the season. McKelvie said, “Bronson has had a very good season so far. His numbers are excellent, and he is right at the top of the league for both save percentage and overall record. We are really happy with the year Bronson is having.”
Moore and the Wolves will travel south to Eugene, Oregon, for a two-game series against the Eugene Generals. This series will be held at the Rink Exchange on Friday, February 26th, and Saturday, February 27th, at 7:35 pm. Then the Wolves will host the Seattle Ravens on Sunday, February 28th, at 7:35 pm for the team’s final game of the weekend.
Tune in to the NPHL’s website on Wednesday, February 24th, for a full weekend preview.
