WCHA honors Kapelmaster

BIG RAPIDS — Ferris State University junior netminder Justin Kapelmaster (Coral Springs, Fla.) has been chosen as this week’s recipient of the Western Collegiate Hockey Association Goaltender of the Week Award.

Kapelmaster had a big weekend for the Bulldogs as FSU earned a weekend split on the road against ninth-ranked Bowling Green this past weekend.

During the weekend series, Kapelmaster had a league-high 76 saves and allowed only two goals while going the distance between the pipes both nights. He notched his first victory and first shutout win of the year on Saturday night while making an impressive 41 saves in FSU’s 3-0 triumph over the Falcons.

The shutout on Saturday was the fourth of his collegiate career. Overall, he posted a 1.03 goals against average and .974 save percentage in the two-game weekend set.

Ferris State returns home to host Lake Superior State in a pivotal WCHA series this weekend at the Ewigleben Ice Arena in Big Rapids. Both games get underway at 7:07 p.m.
