Muskegon Lumberjack goalie honored as USHL Goaltender of the Week

Local Sports Journal

It didn’t take long for Muskegon Lumberjack goaltender Kevin Lindskoug to make his presence felt in the United States Hockey League.

Lindskoug won both his starts, posted a 1.00 goals-against-average and was named the USHL Goaltender of the Week. In his Jacks’ debut, he stopped 36-of-37 shots in a 3-1 road victory over the Chicago Steel.

The next night, at L.C. Walker Arena, he stopped 27 shots en route to a 4-1 victory over the Indiana Ice.

The 20-year-old from Trelleborg, Sweden had a stretch of nearly periods of play without allowing a goal.

“I feel good about winning this award; it was a very good week for me,” said Lindskoug.  “This award cannot be spoken for alone thanks to the good defenders playing well in front of me.  Everyone on the team earns a piece of this award as well.”

Muskegon hits the road for a long weekend trip to Cedar Rapids (Friday) and Des Moines (Saturday).

The Jacks also have a road game at Team USA on Oct. 16 before returning home to face the Steel on Oct. 19.
