INCH Player of the Week
Presented by The INCH Shop

Sophomore | Goalie
Hinton, Iowa


His Statistics: 2 GP, 1-0-1, 70 saves, 1 GA

His Impact: UConn was muddling along through the first half of the season, but since returning to Atlantic Hockey play in mid-January, the Huskies have lost just once in six games against conference foes.

The most recent test came against first-place RIT, and goalie Beau Erickson answered the call against the top team in Atlantic Hockey. He started the weekend set in Storrs by making 40 saves in a 3-0 shutout win. He followed that up with a 30-save performance in a 1-1 tie against the Tigers on Saturday.

The Huskies are now in a three-way tie for sixth place in Atlantic Hockey, and just two points behind fifth-place Mercyhurst for the final home-ice spot in the league playoffs.

His Runners-Up: Jeff Lerg (Michigan State), Matt Fornataro (New Hampshire), Alex Stalock (Minnesota Duluth), Matt Thomey (Yale), Matt Pope (Bemidji State)
