Mike Condon Named ECHL Goaltender of the Week



The Wheeling Nailers, proud ECHL affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins and Montreal Canadiens, are thrilled to announce that goaltender Mike Condon has been named CCM ECHL Goaltender of the Week for Nov. 25-Dec.1.

Condon, 23, earns the honor for the first time in his career, after posting a 2-0-1 record, a 0.97 goals against average, and a .971 save percentage, as the Nailers extended their point streak to ten consecutive games. Mike began the week by recording his first shutout as a Nailer and second of his professional career, blocking all 38 shots he faced in a 3-0 victory at Cincinnati. On Friday night, the Holliston, MA turned in another stellar effort, making 34 saves on 35 shots in a 3-1 win at Elmira. Finally, on Sunday, Condon helped his team earn one point against Cincinnati at home, finishing with 28 saves on 30 shots. Over the course of the week, Condon and teammate Mathieu Corbeil combined to stop 139 of the 142 shots sent their way.

Mike is currently in the midst of his first full season of professional hockey, after debuting at the tail end of last season with the ECHL’s Ontario Reign and AHL’s Houston Aeros. Since turning pro after graduating from Princeton University, the 6-foot-3 backstop has gone 14-4-2 in 22 regular season appearances.

Mike Condon and the Wheeling Nailers will be home for two games this coming week, as they take on the Reading Royals on Friday and the Cincinnati Cyclones on Saturday. Both games begin at 7:00.

About B.Pettit

Lead Journalist - Owner - Editor I developed PensFans4Ever back when the Penguins first came to Wilkes-Barre. It was started to keep the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins Fans along with the Pittsburgh Penguin Fans up to date with happenings as far as who is up and who is down. We Started out as just a message board where we would post news and information and other fans would post their feelings and any information they had. We then turned into a dot com and started making a true web site, at first it was just news, we incorporated a message board into the site. By the third year we added a chat feature. This enables the fans to gather in a live chat room during games that they can’t be at. We try to make it as informative as possible. Since everything that has happened to us we have turned our site into a blog but keeping with what we started out to do not just giving you our thoughts and interpretations we incorporate official team news and press releases.
