Briggs named ECHL goaltender of the week.

It came as no surprise to anyone who watched Kellen Briggs dominate the Alaska Aces last weekend that the Reign goalie was named ECHL Goaltender of the Week today.

Briggs recorded a win in three consecutive games at Sullivan Arena, finishing the week with a save percentage of .952 and a goals-against average of 1.66. Briggs turned aside 38 shots in a 2-1 victory on Friday, stopped 31 shots in a 4-3 win on Saturday, and then made 30 saves in a 2-1 victory on Sunday.

It’s the second time Briggs has been honored as Goaltender of the Week. From Nov. 19-25 he went 2-0-0 with a 0.50 GAA, and .973 save percentage for the Idaho Steelheads.

The 27-year-old is 4-5-1 in 11 games, posting a 2.79 goals-against average and a save percentage of .912.

Right wing Jeff Corey, who had a strong week for the Reign in Alaska, was passed over for the ECHL Player of the Week award. Brad Snetsinger of Utah got the nod.
