CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -

The United States Hockey League announced Tuesday that Brady Hjelle of the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders has been selected as the 2010-11 USHL Goaltender of the Year as determined by a vote of League coaches and general managers.

Hjelle was an iron man for the RoughRiders appearing in 53 of the team's 60 regular season games and posting a 40-8-5 record.  He played nearly 230 minutes more than any other USHL goaltender this season.  The 40 wins by Hjelle set a new USHL single season record for wins by a goaltender, surpassing the win total of 36 set by Jeff Lerg of the Omaha Lancers during the 2004-05 season.  Hjelle had the fourth best goals-against-average (2.21) in the League and ranked second in save percentage (.923) while making the most saves (1,419) in the USHL.
