Comets Goalie Bachman Named AHL Player of the Week
The Utica Comets are off to a great start to the new year.
They’re riding a season-best six-game winning streak and that’s due in part to some excellent play in the net.
Comets goalie Richard Bachman has been named the CCM/AHL Player of the Week for the period ending Jan. 22, 2017.
Bachman and the Comets went 3-0-0 last week as the netminder turned aside 78 of the 81 shots he faced (.963 save percentage). That included Bachman’s first shutout of the season in Utica’s 4-0 road win over Syracuse.
The Comets play in a trio of home games this week at the Utica AUD:
- Wednesday (1/25) vs. Springfield
- Friday (1/27) vs. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton
- Saturday (1/28) vs. Syracuse
