POTSDAM, N.Y.—For the second time this season, SUNY Potsdam women's hockey player Dawna Salvarinas has been named the Goalie of the Week by the Eastern College Athletic Conference West.

Salvarinas stopped 71 of 74 shots in two starts last week. She made 36 saves in a 4-1 victory over the Castleton State Spartans on Tuesday night. On Sunday, the junior made 35 more saves in a 2-0 loss to Utica.

In nine games this season, Salvarinas is 5-3 with a .917 save percentage and a 2.54 goals-against-average. Her five wins are a career-best and as are her two shutouts.

The Bears (6-9-2, 2-6-1 ECAC West) are 5-2-2 in their last nine contests after a 1-7 start. Potsdam is off this week, but returns to action on Jan. 26-27, when the Bears host the Neumann College Knights.
