Top Five Netminders – Week 9



Each week LISN uses advanced analytics to break down the top ten tandems in the SCHSHL Varsity Division. Our model factors in everyday statistics such as Wins, GAA and Shut Outs to establish a baseline for league play. It then takes into account stats such as Power Play Goals Against, Shorthanded Goals Against, and GAA in order to analyze how a player produces as well as what situations they produce in. We also use our analytics program to track how players perform in wins/losses, when they score in a game as well as a multitude of other factors.

1st Shane Kirby

Connetquot Sayville BBP

GP: 6 | GS: 6 | Wins: 12| Losses: 4 | Goals Against: 23 | GAA: 3.83 | Minutes: 224

The T-Birds starter was lights out in a 2-1 win against the Bulls that has sparked hope for another deep playoff run. Our model views Kirby as an elite goaltender capable of stealing games for his team down the stretch.

2nd Brody Dickson

East Islip

GP: 7 | GS: 5 | Wins: 5 | Losses: 0 | Ties: 2 | Goals Against: 19 | GAA: 2:88 | SO: 2 | Minutes: 297

The EI netminder has backstopped his team to back-to-back wins on back-to-back nights against Sachem and West Islip respectively. Through his last three games played, Dickson has allowed just one goal against in 120 minutes.

3rd Jayson Krauthammer

Kings Park Commack

GP: 5 | GS: 5 : Wins: 4 | Losses:0 | Ties: 1 | Goals Against: 12 | GAA: 2.00 | SO: 1 | Minutes: 225

The KPC starter has been lights out in big games so far this season. According to our model, Krauthammer will be a player to watch as the playoff race heats up.

4th Aidan Halliday

Smithtown Hauppauge

GP: 5 | GS: 5 | Wins: 2 | Losses: 3 | Goals Against: 13 | GAA: 2.60 | SO: 1 | Minutes 225

Since losing 5-4 to Sachem in Overtime, Halliday has allowed just eight goals through four contests. Our model views his stellar play in both wins and losses as a major asset to the Bulls moving forward.

5th Thomas Ulmschneider

St. Anthony’s

GP: 6 | GS: 6 | Wins: 3 | Losses: 3 | Goals Against: 16 | GAA: 2.68 | SO: 1 | Minutes: 269

Despite a 1-3 start to the season, Ulmschneider has given his team a chance to win every game he’s started this season. The Friars have now won four of their last five games with Ulmschneider allowing just five goals in his last three starts.
