USHL Goalie of the Week: Matthew Thiessen
This week the
JuniorHockey.Com USHL Goalie of the Week is Matthew Thiessen of the Dubuque
Fighting Saints. Thiessen played an outstanding game on Saturday when his
Saints thoroughly dismantled the Green Bay Gamblers by a score of 7-1. The
Gamblers tried to beat him on 23 occasions. They failed 22 times. Following
that win, Thiessen was given the night off in Sunday’s matchup against the
Muskegon Lumberjacks. That was until his struggling counterpart in net, the Saint’s
Aaron Randazzo, was pulled after allowing four goals. Thiessen took over for
the remainder of the game (TOI:38:47). He allowed only one goal. In total, he
only allowed two pucks past all week long. Thiessen boasts a 3.19 GAA and .0885
Save Percentage on the season.

is a native of Altona, Manitoba, Canada. Growing up, Thiessen played for several
youth hockey organizations such as the Pembina Valley Hawks, Rink Hockey Academy Prep and the Steinbach
Pistons. Matthew has committed to play for the University of Maine, Black Bears
beginning in the 2019 season. Thiessen was the 192nd pick in the 7th round of
the 2018 NHL Entry Draft of the Vancouver Canucks.
