Prince Rupert Minor Hockey product Frank Slubowski started his NCAA career with a bang over the weekend, posting a shutout and being selected as one of the three stars in a game that saw the University of Western Michigan Broncos down the University of Alabama in Huntsville Chargers.

In his first start of the season, Slubowski stopped all 10 shots he faced en-route to a 4-0 win on Saturday night.

“It was huge. I felt really comfortable out there,” he said, adding that the Broncos defence played a major role in the win.

“They played a really solid game. It’s great having that kind of defence out there because you just have to stop that first shot and they’ll most likely be there for the second.”

The Broncos now sit with a record of 2-0 after defeating the Chargers on Friday and Saturday. They also defeated the University of Toronto team 7-2 in an exhibition game on October 1.

The Broncos are currently ranked 12th in the nation by both the US College Hockey Online and the USA Today/US Hockey magazine. The team will be in action again this Friday against Union University.
