Former Los Angeles Jr. King Tomas Sholl was named the ECHL Goaltender of the Week for the week ending Dec. 22.
It’s the third time this season - and the sixth time in his career - he’s received the weekly honor. The six weekly awards are tied for the third-most in ECHL history.
In two appearances on the road last week against the Norfolk Admirals, Sholl fashioned a 2-0-0 record, including one shutout, to compliment a 0.50 goals-against average and .980 save percentage. The 25-year-old stopped all 21 shots he faced in a 2-0 win on Wednesday and made 29 saves in a 4-1 victory on Saturday.
Under contract with Texas of the American Hockey League, Sholl is tied for the ECHL lead with 12 wins; is third with 1,201 minutes played and 505 saves; fourth with a 2.30 goals-against average; and tied for seventh with a .919 save percentage.
Sholl, who last season earned a spot in the ECHL All-Star Classic while being named to the ECHL All-Rookie Team and All-ECHL Second Team, has appeared in 78 career ECHL games with Idaho and the Adirondack Thunder posting an overall record of 52-16-8 (nine shutouts) to go along with a 2.09 goals-against average and .930 save percentage.
He also has spent time in the Southern Professional Hockey League with Macon Mayhem and Evansville Thunderbolts where he went 14-3-3 with one shutout, a 2.53 goals-against average and .917 save percentage.
Prior to turning pro, Sholl saw action in 19 games over three seasons at Bowling Green State University going 7-10-0 with two shutouts, a 2.93 goals-against average and .891 save percentage.
