Frontier Division Star of the Week: Evan Hauser, Goaltender, GF Americans

Evan Hauser, the 20 year old goaltender for the Great Falls Americans, made the most of it by playing just one game last week. The Minnesota native earned his second shut-out of the season with 31 saves as Great Falls edged the previously unbeaten Helena Bighorns, 1-0 on Saturday night in Great Falls.  He now has a perfect 7-0 record this season and his seven wins are tied for the lead in the NA3HL.

Great Falls Americans head coach Jeff Heimel: “Evan has been very solid and when he plays with confidence, he is hard to beat. He makes the saves look routine and is a big part of our success so far this season.”

Helena Bighorns head coach Jon Jonasson: “Evan is hands down one of the most skilled and competitive goaltenders that I have coached against. He plays with a great deal of poise and confidence in the crease. He did an outstanding job turning away 43 shots against us on Saturday night in Great Falls’ 1-0 victory against us. We wish him the best of luck.”
