Two shutouts earns Plattsburgh’s Kassi Abbott Goalie of the Week award

SYRACUSE, N.Y. – Plattsburgh senior goalie Kassi Abbott (Medford, MA) has been selected the Northeast Women's Hockey League's Goalie of the Week.

The honor is for games contested from Monday, Oct. 29, through Sunday, Nov. 4, and was announced by the NEWHL on Tuesday, Nov. 6.

Abbott posted a pair of shutouts in a regular-season and NEWHL-opening sweep of Cortland on Nov. 3 and 4. She registered a dozen saves in a 5-0 victory over Cortland on Friday before turning aside another 12 shots on goal in a 7-0 blanking of the Red Dragons on Saturday.

With two shutouts, a 0.00 goals-against average and a 1.000 save percentage for the season, Abbott is tied for the NCAA Division III lead in each of those statistical categories.
