Express grad Defiel tops WCHA rookie performers
Friday, November 21, 2014 - Submitted by BCHL Media/WCHA

It's been tough going for the Lake Superior State Lakers this season but they got some positive news last weekend with a win and their freshman goalie earning a weekly conference award.

Coquitlam Express alum Gordie Defiel was named the Western Collegiate Hockey Association (WCHA) rookie of the week. The Stillwater, Minn. product posted his first NCAA shutout in a 1-0 blanking of Alabama-Huntsville Nov. 14.

Defiel and the Lakers lost to the Chargers the next night but the 6-foot, 197-pound netminder has a .909 save percentage and a 3.22 goals-against average on the season. He is fourth in NCAA hockey with 309 saves on the season.

With the Express last season, Defiel went 20-21-1 in the regular season but heated up in the playoffs and backstopped the Express to the 2014 Fred Page Cup. He had a .922 save percentage and 2.69 goals-against average in the postseason which earned him his NCAA opportunity at LSSU.
