Haugenoe Rides Strong Weekend to League Honors
FRISCO, TX – Behind a two-win, 60-save weekend, Bismarck Bobcats goalie Camden Haugenoe earned the Central Division Star of the Week Award, given by the North American Hockey League and Bauer Hockey.
A product of Williston High School, Haugenoe stopped 21 of 22 shots in Friday’s 5-1 win over the Austin Bruins followed by a 39-for-41 effort to earn the Cats a 4-2 victory over Austin the next night.
“We needed a guy to step up for us and Cam did exactly that, giving us a chance to win both nights,” extolled Bobcats head coach and general manager Layne Sedevie. “He was calm and confident and made the big saves when we needed them.”
Haugenoe’s biggest stretch of the weekend was Saturday’s third period, when the first-year backstop turned away all 19 shots sent his way to preserve a close win heading into the league’s Christmas break.
With second-year keeper Will Ulrich sidelined due to a lower body injury, Haugenoe has gone 2-1-0 in his last three starts to get his record back to .500 at 4-4-0 in his first NAHL season.
He becomes the fourth Bobcat to take the Central’s top weekly honor, joining: Will Ulrich (October 24), Tobias Fladeby (October 3) and Jordan Fralich (September 19).
Also earning plaudits for a strong weekend was Bobcat co-captain Jared Resseguie, who chipped in a goal and two assists amid the sweep of Austin.
Currently, the Bobcats are enjoying the NAHL Christmas break, with 10 days still to go before opening a three-game series with the archrival Minot Minotauros on Thursday, December 29, at Maysa Arena.
The Cats’ return from the break will be broadcast locally on the radio home of Bobcat Hockey, Super Talk 1270 AM, and worldwide on HockeyTV.com–the web television partner of the North American Hockey League–with pregame coverage starting at 6:35pm.
