Quinnipiac junior Bud Fisher (Peterborough, Ont.) has been named the ECAC Hockey Goaltender of the Week, as announced by the league office on Jan. 2, 2008. The award is Fisher’s third of his career.

Wow, he's doing great...This is my first season since the NHL lockout that I have not been folowing college hockey closely. My walkman seemed to have trouble picking up 620, and I don't have time to listen or read up online! I had to look up about the Catamount Cup, however, because I noticed that when I checked the schedule at the beginning of the season :)

God bless you, Pilgrim!
