NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C.- The South Carolina Stingrays, celebrating 23 seasons in the Lowcountry and proud affiliate of the Washington Capitals of the National Hockey League (NHL), are proud to announce that Branden Komm has been named the CCM ECHL Goaltender of the Week for Dec. 21-27.
Komm is undefeated with South Carolina since joining the club in November. The Williamsville, N.Y., native started both of South Carolina's home games versus Norfolk last weekend, going 2-0-0-0 with a 1.00 goals-against average and a .955 save percentage.
Komm stopped 25 shots in Sunday's 3-0 win over Norfolk to earn his first professional shutout. He was also strong in a 5-2 win over the Admirals on Saturday, stopping 17 shots.
