The United States Hockey League (USHL) announced on Monday that Art Brey (Bry) has been named CCM Goaltender of the Week after stopping 45 of 46 shots and posting a .978 save percentage in two victories over the weekend. It marks the second time this season that Brey has earned the award.

On Thursday, Brey earned his second shutout of the season, stopping all 18 shots faced in a 4-0 victory over Fargo. He followed that performance up by stopping 27 of 28 shots in a 3-1 win over the Bloomington Thunder on Friday at the PREMIER Center. The wins improved the Stampede’s record to 30-20-5 on the season and helped them secure a playoff spot while extending their home winning streak to eight games.
