Philadelphia, PA – The National Hockey League announced today that Flyers goaltender Brian Elliott has been named the Third Star of the Week.
Elliott recorded a perfect 3-0-0 mark as the team faced a tough, Western Canadian road trip that saw them play three games in four nights. He posted a .954 save percentage and 1.66 goals-against average on the week after stopping 103 out of 108 shots, including 28 saves on 29 shots he saw in third periods.
“It’s great to be recognized, but whenever you get those recognitions as a goalie it shows how the group has been playing, especially this last week,” said Elliott. “It’s my name up there, but definitely the Philadelphia Flyers whole team deserves that.”
