Bruin goalie Nick Lehr was named Central Division Star of the Week Monday.

The Austin Bruins secured their second straight Central Division title over the weekend and Lehr, a 21-year old University of Minnesota recruit, was there to backstop the wins as usual. The native of Roseville, Minnesota was as solid as ever as he stopped 50 of 52 shots in back-to-back 4-1 wins on Friday and Saturday. On Friday, Lehr made 14 saves in a 4-1 win over the Bobcats. Lehr was even better on Saturday as he made 30 saves in another 4-1 win. Lehr finished as the NAHL leader in wins (35) and was second in both games and minutes played this season.

Austin head coach Chris Tok was pleased with Lehr did over the weekend.

“Nick faced some quality shots both nights, but he just made the big saves when he had to and kept us in the game. He is mentally very tough and when he combines that with his technical skill, he is one tough goalie to beat,” said Chris Tok.
