Kautz earns NAHL weekly honor
The North American Hockey League named Janesville Jets goaltender Brock Kautz as the North Division Star of the Week.
A Rochester, Minn. native and second-year player for the Jets, Kautz was stellar in goal last weekend as the Jets swept intra-state rival Coulee Region Chill.
Kautz stopped 70 of a combined 73 shots over the weekend, good for a 95.8 percent save percentage. He only allowed one late third period goal on 28 shots in Friday night's victory and stopped a season-high 43 out of 45 shots Saturday.
Kautz is sixth overall this season in the North American Hockey League (NAHL) save percentage category at .924. Overall this season in 21 games, Kautz has a record of 9-9-3 with one shutout. He has a 2.56 goals against average. Last season with the Jets, Kautz had a record of 8-5-1 and two shut-outs.
"I think as we have gotten better and more consistent over the last few weeks, so has Brock," said Jets head coach Joe Dibble. "Brock has valuable experience playing in this league and when he is on his game he is very tough to beat. Experience and confidence are two very beneficial things to a goaltender of his caliber, and the team has really fed off his play."
