Former Los Angeles Jr. King Tomas Sholl was selected to represent the Idaho Steelheads for the Mountain Division at the upcoming ECHL All-Star Classic, which will be showcased on Monday, Jan. 21, in Toledo, Ohio.
A goaltender, Sholl has appeared in 16 games for the Steelheads this season, posting a 12-4-0 record, including two shutouts, to go along with a 1.98 goals-against average and .937 save percentage. He currently sits atop the ECHL in save percentage and second in goals-against average.
The Bowling Green State University graduate joined the Steelheads midway through the 2017-18 season and has excelled in his time in Idaho, already qualifying for the second-best career goals-against average, save percentage and shutouts for a Steelheads ECHL goaltender in just 27 games played.
In his Steelheads career, the Hermosa Beach native holds a sterling 21-4-2 record, including six shutouts, to compliment a 1.67 goals-against average and .943 save percentage.
“Tomas has been extremely consistent,” said Steelheads head coach Neil Graham. “He goes about his business quietly and puts in the work, on and off the ice. He’s a leader on our hockey team, and we’re thrilled he’s being rewarded for all his efforts with the honor of being named to the All-Star Classic.”
Making his first professional all-star appearance, Sholl, 24, will be Idaho’s lone representative, with each team in the league sending one player - outside of the host city.
The rosters for the Eastern Conference and Western Conference All-Stars were determined in a vote of coaches, team captains, media relations directors, broadcasters and members of the media.
The ECHL All-Star Classic will face off at 4:00 p.m. PT and be televised live exclusively on NHL Network.
