McNulty Nominated For Performance Of The Week
SOUTHAVEN, MS --- Mississippi RiverKings goaltender Kyle McNulty is a nominee for the latest Central Hockey League Performance of the Week award. The league office announced today the nominees for the online voting that continues through March 15th.
McNulty stopped 35 shots on net in his first start with the RiverKings last Saturday night in a 2-1 shootout victory against the Americans in Allen. That effort, coupled with a 33-save performance the following afternoon against the Missouri Mavericks in suburban Kansas City, earned the Wakfield, Rhode Island native the league award yesterday for Goaltender of the Week.
It is the 35-save effort against Allen that McNulty was nominated for the Performance of the Week.
Through two games with the RiverKings, McNulty has a 2-0-0 record, a 0.96 goals-against-average and a save percentage of.971.
Kyle was acquired off waivers last week by the RiverKings after his release by Arizona, where he posted a 6-15-1 record with one shutout, a 3.43 goals-against-average, and a save percentage of.883.
Fans can vote for McNulty's performance on the CHL website, www.centralhockeyleague.com. The winner of the Performance of the Week award will be determined by the online voting and will be announced on Tuesday, March 16th.
Mississippi returns to action at the DeSoto Civic Center in Southaven on Friday, March 12th in a 7:05 PM start against the defending CHL champion Texas Brahmas. A post-game skate for fans follows the contest.
Saturday, the RiverKings host the Bossier-Shreveport Mudbugs at 7:05 PM at the DCC. The jersey retirement ceremony for Don Parsons, the RiverKings' all-time career scoring leader, will take place prior to the game.
Parsons also holds minor league career goal scoring records and also claimed the record for most goals scored by an American-born player at any level.
The Exchange Club Family Center of North Mississippi will be featured and there will be another post-game skate for fans after the contest.
Single game tickets for RiverKings hockey are available from Ticketmaster and the DeSoto Civic Center box office. For information on group tickets and for next year's season tickets, call the RiverKings at 662-342-1755 today!
