Steven Legatto Selected Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Week

Dec. 14, 2009

For the first time in his career Steven Legatto (Kelowna, BC) of the men's ice hockey team was named the Atlantic Hockey Rookie of the Week by the league office.  The freshman goaltender recorded 35 saves and allowed just one goal in a 4-1 victory over Dartmouth Sunday afternoon.

Legatto made 15 of his 35 saves in the third period to hold off the Big Green and earn his third victory of the season.  The rookie netminder allowed a goal on the first shot he saw but recovered immediately shutting out Dartmouth the rest of the way.

The men's ice hockey team returns to action after the holiday break January 2-3 as they kick off an eight game home stand against defending conference champion Air Force.
