Eamon McAdam Named Big Ten’s Third Star of the Week

After winning at home for the first time in his career against Ohio State on Saturday, goaltender Eamon McAdam has been named the Big Ten’s Third Star of the week.

McAdam played lights-out hockey against the Buckeyes, making 35 saves and allowing just one goal on 36 shots during a 5-on-3 Ohio State powerplay. Multiple highlight-reel stops gave him a .972 save percentage in the game — the best in the Big Ten this week.

This season, McAdam is 4-2-0 with a 2.77 goals against average and .918 save percentage, which is best on the team. His 2.77 GAA is almost a goal-and-a-half better than his freshman campaign, when he posted a 4.09 GAA.

After Saturday’s win, McAdam said, “I’m feeling a lot more comfortable [this year]. Getting a few wins under my belt really helped out. Hopefully we can start rolling here and feed off the energy from a win like this, and I just want to be as much a part of it as I can.”
