Matt Jurusik Wins USHL Goaltender of the Week


Jurusik stopped 34 of the 35 faced on Friday, as well as 10 the 11 attempts he saw in the shootout, in Sioux City’s 2-1 shootout win over Central Illinois before turning away 25 of 27 shots to lead the Musketeers to a 5-2 victory over the Flying Aces on Saturday. Jurusik now has six victories on the season and currently sports a 2.73 GAA and .903 SV%, both of which are shy of the top-10 among all USHL goaltenders. He has also seen a lot of rubber this year, as he has faced 25 or more shots in 10 of his 18 appearances. The Chicago, IL native is in his first season in the USHL after spending the last two years at the University of Wisconsin. He has also played for the Janseville Jets (NAHL), where he recorded the NAHL’s best GAA and SV% during the 2014-15 season, Cleveland Barons (T1EHL) and Chicago Fury (T1EHL).
