Jared Rutledge as the Reebok USHL Goaltender of the Week.

Back for his second stint in the USHL, Rutledge backstopped the Gamblers to a 5-1 win over the Chicago Steel on Friday night.  The Skokie, Illinois native recorded a 1.00 goals-against average as he turned aside 39 of 40 shots he saw to register a .975 save percentage.

The 19-year-old Rutledge comes to Green Bay after spending last season at the University of Michigan.  Previously, he spent two seasons in the USHL with Team USA and recorded a 15-11-2 record with a 2.63 GAA and a .911 save percentage.
