Bloom Is NESCAC Player Of The Week

February 14, 2011

Middlebury College women’s hockey player Alexi Bloom (Highland Park, Ill.) has been named the NESCAC Player of the Week for the second time this season. The senior goaltender made 20 saves to earn her 14th career shutout in the Panthers’ only game last week, a 1-0 decision over Plattsburgh St. on Tuesday. She made eight saves in the third period to preserve the shutout and helped the Middlebury defense hold the Cardinals scoreless on three power play opportunities. Bloom currently sits atop the NESCAC in both goals against average (0.84) and save percentage (.958).
