Jan. 22, 2018


Tanner Jaillet and Ian Mitchell have been named Bauer NCHC Players of the Week, the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) announced on Monday.

Jaillet, a senior from Red Deer, Alberta, was named Bauer NCHC Goalie of the Week after recording back-to-back shutouts in Denver’s 4-0 and 5-0 wins against the University of Nebraska Omaha on Jan. 19-20. Jaillet recorded 34 saves on Friday and 30 saves on Saturday, marking his third and fourth shutouts of the season and the first back-to-back shutouts for the Pioneers since Oct. 11-12, 2013. 

In his fourth season, Jaillet has posted a 73-23-13 career record with a .924 save percentage and 2.09 GAA. He has a 13-5-4 record with a .926 save percentage and 2.00 GAA this season.

Mitchell, a freshman from Calahoo, Alberta, was named Bauer NCHC Defenseman of the Week after logging a five-point weekend against Omaha. The Chicago Blackhawks prospect posted a career-high four-point game on Friday with one (1) goal and three (3) assists before adding another assist on Saturday. Mitchell leads Denver defensemen with 20 points (2-18-20) through 24 games and is second in scoring among NCAA freshmen defensemen.

The league honors mark the eighth and ninth for the Pioneers, first for Mitchell and second for Jaillet this season.
