For the season, the rookie netminder has generated a 4-4-1-0 record, 2.27 goals against average and .937 save percentage in ten games.

A 6-foot-3, 185-lb., left-handed catcher, Kaczperski (pronounced KAZ-per-skee) signed with Iowa in December and made his ECHL debut Dec. 29, a relief appearance in which he denied 18 of 19 shots vs. Tulsa. He has allowed one goal in six of his ten appearances.
