Prince Rupert Minor Hockey product Frank Slubowski continues to impress at the University of Western Michigan, helping the Broncos secure back-to-back wins against Colorado College this weekend.
When the two teams faced off on Friday night, Slubowski turned away 29 of 31 shots to give the Broncos the 3-2 victory, the team’s first win in National Collegiate Hockey Conference competition.
“I think it took awhile for us to get our feet moving. I know I didn’t like my start. Going in to the second period we knew we needed to move our feet and stay positive on the bench. It shows a lot about our leadership that we were able to come back like that,” he said following the win.
“It’s a great start for our team. Every team in this league is tough and it’s great for us to come out like this.”
The next night, Slubowski repeated his 29 save performance to complete the sweep as the Broncos took home the 5-1 victory.
