Back to Back Shutouts Earn Tomas Scholl ECHL Honors
The ECHL announced Tuesday that Idaho Steelheads rookie goaltender Tomas Sholl has been named the ECHL Goaltender of the Week for the week of March 12th-18th, the second consecutive week that Sholl has received the honor.
Sholl is the first goaltender to earn the award in back-to-back weeks since December of 2016, when Allen Americans goaltender Riley Gill won the award twice. Sholl is the first Steelhead ever to win the award in consecutive weeks and the first to win twice in a season since Jack Campbell was twice named Goaltender of the Week in the span of a month, between January 18th and February 14th of 2016.
Sholl earned consecutive shutouts last week in South Carolina, the first two shutouts of his ECHL career. The 23 year-old Sholl stopped 32 of 32 shots on Thursday against the Stingrays for a 3-0 victory, followed by a 28-save shutout on Friday night in a 1-0 victory. The 60-save week made Sholl the first goaltender this season to defeat the South Carolina Stingrays in regulation in back-to-back games. He has not surrendered a goal in 152:24 minutes..
