MIDDLETOWN, Conn. – Junior goaltender Tim Sestak of the Wesleyan University's men's ice hockey team was named the NESCAC Player of the Week after recording two shutouts this weekend over conference opponents. The Cardinals blanked Bowdoin on Friday evening, 5-0, as Sestak recorded 27 saves to pick up his third-straight shutout, while the team battled Colby to a 0-0 draw on Saturday as Sestak made 20 stops.
Netminder Sestak has had a phenomenal 2018-19 campaign thus far, as he remains unbeaten in conference play, allowing just eight goals in eight NESCAC contests. He is ranked first in save percentage in the conference (.966) and sits in first place among all Division II/III schools with a .953 overall save percentage.
Sestak has not allowed a goal in the last 203:37 of play. In the last four games, Sestak has allowed just one goal, which is the fewest goals allowed in a four-game stretch in the history of Wesleyan hockey.
On Tuesday, January 12th the men's hockey team will host Plattsburgh State at 4:00 p.m., as Sestak and the Cardinals look to extend their unbeaten streak to six.
