Dubuque goalie wins goaltender of week honors

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Dubuque Fighting Saints goaltender Jacob Nehama was named the United States Hockey League Reebok goaltender of the week yesterday.

The net minder earned his second career shutout, stopping all 19 shots he faced, Friday in a 3-0 win over the Fargo Force.

He didn't start the game Saturday, but was perfect in relief, stopping all 20 shots he saw and leading the Saints to a 4-2 win over Fargo. 

Nehama has been in goal for all of Dubuque's victories this season, and has posted a perfect 7-0-0 record with a 1.92 goals against average and a .918 save percentage.

Nehama is now 12-7-2 in his career with the Saints and Lincoln, and his seven wins this year ties him for the USHL lead.
