We have some good news to report from the farm. Vitek “V” Vanecek has been named the AHL’s Player of the Week for the period ending on December 18. This follows four league honors Vanecek earned last season in the ECHL including Goaltender of the Week, Rookie of the Month, Goaltender of the Month, and at the end of the season, ECHL All-Rookie Team honors.
Vanecek posted his third career shutout Sunday. He also had a .964 save percentage last week, stopping 53 of 55 shots in his two starts and posting a 1-0-1 record with a 0.96 goals against average. Not bad.
