Pair of Sun Devil hockey stars earn monthly honorsPosted: Updated:
TEMPE, Ariz. -- The team may be off, but that has not stopped their accomplishments from rolling in.
Last week, the Arizona State hockey team scored a huge win over No. 1 ranked Minot State, then held off a feisty Williston State team to gain the sweep. That improved the Sun Devils to 19-0-0 on the year, the best start in program history.
On Monday, two of the major reasons for the torrid start were honored.
Senior forward Kale Dolinski was named the ACHA's Harrow Player of the Month for October, after he collected 23 of his league-leading 38 points during the month. Dolinski has been a dominant force for the Sun Devils, forming the core of what is currently the ACHA's second-highest scoring offense with 5.7 goals-per-game.
While Dolinski has been putting points on the stat sheet, teammate Robert Levin has been fantastic at keeping opponents off of it. The freshman goalie took home the ACHA's Warrior Goalie of the Month award, as he went 5-0-0 on the month with a microscopic 0.77 GAA. He currently leads the ACHA in save percentage (.959) and GAA (1.03), helping ASU become the stingiest team in the league by allowing just 1.1 goals-per-game.
ASU is enjoying a two-week break in their schedule, and will return to action on November 25 when they host No. 9 Iowa State for a two-game series. Tickets for that series and all remaining home games can be found here.
