Zhukov played in both Green Bay games over the weekend and performed well against two of the top teams in the USHL. He stopped 29 of 31 shots on Friday against the Waterloo Black Hawks before recording his third shutout of the season to lead the Gamblers to a 4-0 victory over the Chicago Steel on Saturday. The Vegas Golden Knights prospect now sports a 17-12-0-3 record to go along with a solid 2.38 GAA and .912 SV%.
