Fairfield, CT - Pioneer freshman goaltender Stefan Drew (Duagld, MB) has been named the Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Week for the week of January 30th-February 5th.
Drew helped the Pioneers salvage a weekend and season series split with Army with his best performance to date in goal Saturday night. He made 27 saves in net to notch his first career shutout as the Pioneers beat Army 3-0. The freshman, making just his fourth career start, maintained his composure throughout, in a game that got extremely physical in the third period. Drew has been impressive in each appearance thus far, improving with each outing. He has now posted a 2.60 goals against average and .908 save percentage in his five games.
Drew and the Pioneers are off this weekend and play a home and home series with American International Februray 17th-18th.
