COLUMBUS, Ohio –Logan Davis, a freshman goaltender on the Ohio State men’s hockey team, has been named the Big Ten Third Star of the Week, the Big Ten Conference announced Tuesday. Davis, an Upper Arlington, Ohio, native, backstopped the Buckeyes to a weekend sweep of Canisius in the first two starts of his collegiate career, allowing just one goal in the series.
Davis was the only Big Ten goalie to start two games last week. He stopped all 20 shots he faced Friday vs. Canisius in a 3-0 shutout win, the first shutout for a Buckeye freshman since Joe Palmer shut out Lake Superior State Oct. 13, 2006. Saturday, Davis stopped 22-of-23 shots en route to a 3-1 win. In the series, Davis had a .50 goals-against average and .977 save percentage.
Davis saw his first game action Nov. 9, coming on in relief and playing 56:16, allowing one goal. He has now played nearly three whole games (175:53) and has a .68 goals-against average and .966 save percentage, along with three wins.
Ohio State (8-4-0, 0-0-0 B1G), on a five-game winning streak and 8-1 in its last nine games, has this weekend off before it begins Big Ten Conference play with a series against Michigan. The Buckeyes and Wolverines will meet at 7:05 p.m. Nov. 29 in Ann Arbor and at 7:05 p.m. Dec. 2 in Columbus.
