Munce Named Rbk Hockey Goalie of the Week

Mississippi Sea Wolf and Tampa Bay Lightning goaltending prospect Ryan Munce was named the ECHL's Rbk Hockey Goalie of the Week for Dec 31 - Jan 6.

The Mississauga, Ontario native was 4-0-0 with a shutout, a goals-against average of 0.99 and a save percentage of .973 to help the Sea Wolves have their longest winning streak of the season and close the gap on Charlotte (13-13-4), which has a one-point lead on Mississippi (13-19-3).

Folks, those are some sick numbers in any league.

After making 45 saves in a 5-2 win against Florida on Jan. 1, the 6-foot-2 and 185-pound Munce started three games in three days posting a shutout and allowing only one goal in each of the other two games. After making 28 saves in a 4-1 win against Trenton on Jan. 4, he recorded his second shutout of the season stopping 36 shots in a 1-0 win at Gwinnett on Jan. 5 and then closed out the week with 34 saves in a 2-1 overtime win against Trenton on Jan. 6.

With a record of 8-2 on the season with the Sea Wolves, Munce should be a candidate for the 2008 Chase Chevrolet ECHL All-Star game on January 23. The NHL Network will broadcast the game live at 10 pm ET from Stockton, CA.
