Sound Tigers’ Mikko Koskinen wins his first game in a decisive shootout victory. He was a “positive nervous” before the game. I like that thought process. (Connecticut Post)
Braden Holtby of the Hershey Bears is off to a ripping good start. He’s allowed one goal in two games and got a shutout last night against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, making 38 saves in the process. The Bears have 3 goalies at the moment (Michal Neuvirth is injured, plus Jason Bacashihua), but this performance is going to make it very hard to send Holtby to the ECHL when Neuvy is healthy.

I cover the AHL Houston Aeros for ProHockeyNews.com, which has focused my passion for goaltending on minor league goalies mainly in the AHL. To stay abreast of every last drop of AHL goalie news, follow me at @InGoalMagAHL on Twitter while the big news, analysis, etc. will be posted here at InGoalMag.com. I was so inspired by watching the goalies here in Houston a few years ago that I went out and learned to skate and play hockey in order to become a goalie myself. So far I’m still more sieve than goalie, but I’ve never had more fun being so terrible at something!
