LaCouvee is WCHA's goalie of the month

Minnesota State senoir Connor LaCouvee was named WCHA Goaltender of the Month for January, the league announced on Thursday afternoon.

The Qualicum Beach, British Columbia, native went 4-0-0 with a 1.16 goals against average, .937 save percentage and a shutout in five appearances in the month. He stopped all 15 shots he faced in backstopping Minnesota State to a 1-0 win over No. 9 Minnesota Duluth on Jan. 23 for third career shutout.

For the season, LaCouvee owns a 13-3-0 record with a 1.78 goals against average (which ranks first in the WCHA and fourth in the country) and a .915 save percentage. His 13 wins stands tied for ninth in the nation.

The first-year Mavericks netminder led the WCHA and ranked second nationally with a 1.16 goals-against average in January, while his .937 save percentage was a sliver off the league lead and was ninth-best in the country.

The WCHA other players of the month were: Northern Michigan junior Troy Loggins (Offensive), Bowling Green sophomore Alec Rauhauser (Defensive) and Bowling Green freshman forward Brandon Kruse (Rookie).
