Puckstoppers' Student Jack Maxwell Shines At Wellesley High
With a 10-1-1 record through 12 games, the Wellesley Raiders boys' hockey team have enjoyed an unprecedented amount of success in 2014-15. This season the Raiders are not just on track to make a run in the D1 playoffs, but perhaps even garner some Super 8 consideration. Head coach Paul Donato knew he would be entering this season with some firepower. More importantly, however, was the return of four-year varsity starter, two-year captain, and standout goaltender, Jack Maxwell.
Although often overshadowed by his counterparts at private and Catholic schools, Maxwell has proven to be one of the state's best in net. Through 12 starts, the 6'2" keeper holds claim to a Massachusetts-best 0.75 goals against average, as well as a save percentage in the mid-90's. Maxwell has shown to not just be a formidable force in the high school ranks, but also at the Tier 1 level with the Boston Jr. Bruins. A big, technical goalie with the ability to make some acrobatic saves, Maxwell fits the mold of the modern college goalie, and we could very well see him at that level in a couple of years.
Puckstoppers' Student Maggie Salmon Named ECAC West Co-Rookie Of The Week
On February 23, 2015 Puckstoppers' student and William Smith College first-year goalie Maggie Salmon was tabbed the ECAC Women's West Co-Rookie of the Week. She backstopped the Herons to a 1-1-0 record in their weekend series against Cortland. Salmon stopped 89 of the 92 shots she faced.
Salmon got the nod in goal for the Herons against the Red Dragons in both games this weekend. In Saturday's 3-2 loss to Cortland, Salmon turned aside 47 of the 50 shots she faced and kept the Red Dragons off the scoreboard in the third period stopping 18 shots . On Sunday, she notched her first collegiate win and shutout, blanking Cortland 4-0. Salmon made 42 saves in the first shutout in program history. She made a pair of sprawling saves in the game's final minute to preserve the shutout. Salmon held the Red Dragons off the score sheet for 83:32 from Saturday into Sunday.
Salmon finished the season with 593 saves and a .908 saves percentage. She played her best hockey down the stretch making 40-plus saves in each of her last six games. She had a season-high 58 saves in a 2-1 loss to Neumann on Nov. 23. Salmon notched her first collegiate point assisting on a shorthanded goal against Elmira. Salmon's save percentage was ninth best in the ECAC West among goalies that have played at least 33 percent of the team's minutes.
