JuniorHockey.Com’s 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.


Matthew Thiessen (18) 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.
