UND Goaltender Zach Driscoll Has Earned An NCHC Weekly Honors Hat Trick!

     For the third straight week University of North Dakota goalie Zach Driscoll has been named the NCHC Goaltender of the Week, the league office announced on Monday.

     Driscoll, a senior, became only the third goalie in the nine-year history of the NCHC to earn the honor for three straight weeks. He joins former UND goaltender Cam Johnson in 2015-16 and Ludvig Persson of Miami Ohio in 2020-21 as the only players to achieve the feat.

     Driscoll was great for the Fighting Hawks in a pair of victories over Minnesota Duluth. He had over 30 saves in both games leading UND to their first sweep at AMSOIL Arena since 2015.

     Friday night Driscoll made a season-high 36 saves in the Fighting Hawks’ 4-3 victory. He followed up with a 33 save performance in Saturday’s 3-2 win.

     During the month of February Driscoll has been nearly perfect posting a 5-1 record with a 1.82 goals against average, and a .939 save percentage. The victories propelled UND into first place in the NCHC with four games remaining in the regular season.

     No. 7 North Dakota will wrap up its home schedule for the regular season this weekend against No. 6 Western Michigan. Friday night's game will be nationally televised on CBS Sports Network with puck drop slated for 7:07 p.m.
