Tormey tops Zacharias in pro debut

Former Minnesota State goaltender Dan Tormey finally made his pro debut on Sunday night, and, who might he be facing in the other net but his old pal and college teammate Mike Zacharias. Tormey, who also turned 26 on Sunday, got the 4-3 win for the ECHL's Stockton Thunder, making 26 saves. Zacharias, playing for the Ontario Reign, stopped 34 shots. Zacharias has played in 31 games this season for the Reign and, earlier, the Idaho Steelheads. He played in 24 games for Ontario last year.

Read more about the game here and here.

Staying on the subject of MSU goalies past and present, PucKato neglected, while off for a couple of days, to put on the blog Austin Lee getting WCHA defensive player of the week last week. Lee got the honor for his 40-save performance -- 28 stops in the third period -- in the Mavericks' win over Minnesota Duluth. More here.
