The Texas Stars, the American Hockey League affiliate of the NHL’s Dallas Stars, have recalled goaltender former Los Angeles Jr. King Tomas Sholl from the club’s ECHL affiliate, the Idaho Steelheads.
Sholl, 25, is among the league leaders in the ECHL this season holding a 17-5-3 record, 2.26 goals-against average and .921 save percentage. The netminder has logged more time than any other ECHL goaltender and his 17 wins also are the most of any goaltender this year.
In 76 career games with the Steelheads, Sholl holds a 52-17-5 record, including 10 shutouts, 2.10 goals-against average and .929 save percentage. Last season, he led the AHL in save percentage and ranked third in goals-against average and fifth in wins.
Sholl’s accolades include a selection to the 2019 ECHL All-Star Classic and the 2019 All-Rookie Team. He’s also a six-time ECHL Goaltender of the Week and two-time recipient of the ECHL Goaltender of the Month award.
Sholl is in his third professional season and second full year with the Steelheads. Prior to turning pro, Sholl played three seasons and 19 games at Bowling Green State University. He also journeyed across four teams in his rookie season, manning the net with the Macon Mayhem and Evansville Thunderbolts in the Southern Professional Hockey League and Adirondack Thunder in the ECHL before landing in Idaho.
