Wisconsin freshman goaltender Joel Rumpel has been named Red Baron
WCHA co-Rookie of the Week.
Rumpel earned his first collegiate shutout with a 36-save, 4-0 gem at Minnesota State last Friday, then went on to stop 29 of 31 shots on goal in a 3-0 setback to the Mavericks last Saturday. One goal allowed was an empty-netter while the other two came on first period MSU power-plays. For the series, Rumpel stopped 65 of 67 shots on goal he faced for a .970 saves percentage with four shutout periods.
Rumpel is now 7-5-2 with a 2.66 goals-against average, .915 save percentage and one shutout.
