Brad Thiessen Named AHL Player of the Week
Brad Thiessen knew he had to be good with all of his team’s scorers in Pittsburgh. And he stood up to the challenge by allowing 3 goals in 5 starts. Because of his excellent play including his one goal performance against the AHL powerhouse Hersey Bears, he has earned the AHL Player of the Week award.
Thiessen went 4-1 this week with a 0.60 GAA and a .971 SV% in his first week back from injury.
Thiessen was a college free agent signed by the Penguins last summer and he has stolen the starting job away from AHL veteran John Curry.
Thiessen’s numbers this season are now up to a very impressive 1.87 GAA and .925 sv% to go along with 22 wins and 5 shutouts.
