Ingerson named Goalie/Week; Freitag on Honor Roll
PLYMOUTH, N.H. – Two Plymouth State University men's ice hockey players were honored Monday with weekly honors from the Massachusetts State Collegiate Athletic Conference (MASCAC) following a key victory last week.
Junior Tyler Ingerson (Concord, N.H.) was named the MASCAC Goalie of the Week Monday and sophomore Mike Freitag (Westmont, Ill.) was selected to the Weekly Honor Roll. They were pivotal players in PSU's only contest last week, a 2-1 victory over Wentworth in what was a rematch of the 2012 NCAA Division III Tournament game.
A 5'10", 185-pound goalie, Ingerson made 24 saves on 25 shots as PSU defeated Wentworth, including 10 saves in the second period. Ingerson kept the Leopards, who were ranked 15th at the time in the Division III national poll, off the scoreboard on all three power play attempts. Wentworth had defeated PSU 3-1 in last year's NCAA Tournament game.
Ingerson, who is pushing senior Jack Astedt (Angelholm, Sweden) for playing time between the pipes for PSU, currently leads the MASCAC in goals against average (1.00), save percentage (.951) and winning percentage (2-0-0, 1.000).
A 5'6", 160-pound forward, Freitag had a part in all of the PSU scoring, picking up assists on both Panther goals and was named the game's No. 1 star. Freitag shares the team scoring lead through four games with seven points on one goal and six assists. He scored five goals and added 10 assists in his 22-game rookie season.
Plymouth State, 3-1-0 overall and 1-1-0 in conference games, returns home for a pair of MASCAC contests this week at Hanaway Rink – Thursday against Salem State University in the first rematch of last season's double-overtime MASCAC Championship game, and Saturday vs. Worcester State University.
