I know this is a few days late... but I've been on dial-up. Cut me some slack.

From here:

Rob Nolan
Jr., G, Michigan Tech

MADISON, Wisc. - Goaltender Rob Nolan, who turned in a stellar performance between the pipes as Michigan Tech University finished second in the annual Great Lakes Invitational Tournament last weekend, has been named Red Baron WCHA Defensive Player of the Week for Jan. 2-7.

A 6-0, 180-pound junior from Sherwood Park, Alberta, Nolan started both games of the tournament for MTU against defending national champion Michigan State and No. 1-ranked Michigan on Dec. 28-29, stopping 74 of 76 shots on goal for a .974 saves percentage, yielding just two goals, and recording seven shutout periods.

In a 4-1 Michigan Tech victory over Michigan State last Friday (Dec. 28) evening at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Mich., Nolan stopped 29 of 30 shots on goal and blanked the Spartans on all four of their power-play chances.

Nolan then came back in the GLI championship game against Michigan last Saturday (Dec. 29) night, stopping a season-high 45 shots and blanking the Wolverines on all eight of their man-advantage opportunities in a 1-0 double overtime defeat.

Also nominated for the award this week were: Jon Olthuis, G, UAA; Nate Prosser, D, CC; Chris Butler, D, DU; Nick Canzanello, D, MSU; and John Swanson, D, SCSU.
