Force netminder Matej Marinov has been named USHL Goaltender of the Week for Week 18

Marinov earned his first USHL win, USHL assist and first USHL Goaltender of the Week award in just his second appearance of his career. He stopped 27/28 on Friday night’s 4-1 win over the Des Moines Buccaneers. The Slovakian netminder put up a .964 save percentage, 1.00GAA and an assist on Bret Link’s goal to put the team up 4-1 helping the Force secure a sweep over the Buccaneers last weekend.

The Force are on the road for three huge games this weekend as they’ll look to carry on their win streak and continue to move up in the rankings. The games start on Thursday night with a stop in Des Moines to face the Buccaneers on their home ice. That’s followed by games on Friday and Saturday against the Waterloo Blackhawks who the Force are neck in neck in the current standings.
