Todd Scott Named USHL Goaltender of the Week
Kearney, NE. - For the third time in the 2020-2021 USHL regular season, Storm goaltender Todd Scott has been named the USHL's Goaltender of the Week. Scott recorded his 9th victory of the season in net in Friday's 5-0 home win over the Lincoln Stars. He was previously named USHL Goaltender of the Week on November 20th and December 15th. No player in the USHL has collected more weekly awards to this point in the season than Todd Scott.
Todd Scott, 20, of Albertville, Minnesota turned away all 21 Stars' shots last Friday to post a shutout on "Pack It In Purple" night at the Viaero Center. On Saturday, Scott made 15 saves on 17 shots in Tri-City's 2-1 road loss to Lincoln. Last season, Scott appeared in thirteen games with the Storm after being acquired in January. He posted his first career USHL shutout with the Storm in a 5-0 road victory over the Madison Capitols on February 16th. Last week's win over Lincoln was his second career USHL shutout. On December 31st, Scott was named one of Tri-City's Alternate Captains for the remainder of the 2020-2021 regular season. As a goaltender, Scott does not wear an "A" on his jersey, but is included in the Storm's leadership group as an Alternate Captain. Entering tonight's home game against the Omaha Lancers, Scott is among the USHL leaders in several major goaltending statistics. He has posted a record of 9-4-0-1 to this point in the season. His Goals Against Average (GAA) of 2.06 is currently 2nd best in the USHL this year. His Save Percentage (SV%) of 0.913 is tied for 2nd best in the league. Following last Friday's shutout victory over Lincoln, Scott is now one of only six goaltenders in the USHL this season to record a shutout. He posted a 1-1-0-0 record, a GAA of 1.01, and a SV% of .947% in the Storm's games last weekend.
"It's definitely an honor to be named the USHL's Goaltender of the Week for the third time this season and it could not have been done without the guys playing awesome in front of me every night. We continue to push ourselves as a group and take steps forward every day, so I think we have some good things in store for us moving forward. Controlled aggression in the net and finding pucks through screens is going to be huge this weekend against Omaha." - Goaltender Todd Scott
"I thought Todd was excellent last weekend and he gave us a chance to win both nights. Giving up only two goals on a weekend is a good recipe for success moving forward for this group. " - President of Hockey Operations/Head Coach Anthony Noreen
