Shutouts Stand Out for Stein
Black Hawks' goalie Logan Stein doubled his shutout total over the weekend and was named the United States Hockey League "Goaltender of the Week" for the second time this season. The Ferris State recruit blanked the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders on Thanksgiving night during a 4-0 Waterloo win. The teams met for a rematch Saturday, with Stein and the Hawks coming out on top 1-0. Over 11 appearances this season, Stein is 8-3-0-0 with four shutouts.

Beginning this weekend, Stein will represent the United States – along with Rolston and fellow Black Hawk Connor Caponi – at the World Junior A Challenge in Dawson Creek, British Columbia.
