Gophers' Schierhorn named Big Ten Goaltender of the Year
University of Minnesota freshman Eric Schierhorn has been named the Big Ten's Goaltender of Year after leading the conference with 19 wins during the regular season.
A native of Anchorage, Alaska, Schierhorn's 2.67 goals-against average and .906 save percentage helped the Gophers to a third consecutive Big Ten regular season title.
Justin Kloos, Hudson Fasching and Michael Brodzinski were named to the All-Big Ten Second Team, while Jake Bischoff was an All-Big Ten Honorable Mention.
Schierhorn is the second Gophers goalie to win the award since the league's formation in 2013, following Adam Wilcox's win in 2014.
