Today the USHL announced Gamblers goaltender Evan Fear has been named USHL Goaltender of the Week.
Fear was outstanding between the pipes during his only start of the weekend, as he stopped all 43 shots he faced in Green Bay’s 1-0 victory over Dubuque. With his 43-save performance, the Quinnipiac commit earned his first career USHL shutout and moved his season record over the .500 mark to 3-2-0-0. Fear has been solid through five starts this year, posting a 2.59 GAA and .924 SV%. His .924 SV% places him sixth among all USHL goaltenders who have played more than one game, while his 2.59 GAA is ninth in the same category. He has also faced 35 or more shots in three of his five appearances. 2018-19 marks Fear second season playing in the USHL, as he suited up for 14 games with the Dubuque Fighting Saints during the 2016-17 campaign. A Winnetka, IL native, Fear spent time with the Springfield Jr. Blues (NAHL) and Chicago Mission (HPHL). He was taken in the fourth round, 57th overall by the Gamblers in the 2018 USHL Phase II Draft.
