Allen, Texas – The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of Seattle Kraken (NHL), announced today that goalie Luke Peressini, has been named the Warrior Hockey ECHL Goaltender of the Week.

Luke Peressini went 3-0 last week in three starts against the Wichita Thunder. The rookie netminder leads the Americans in wins this season with eight (8-4-0), with a sparkling 0.929 save percentage.

“We haven’t been a kind team to our goalies this season,” said Americans Head Coach and General Manager Steve Martinson, yet Peressini has been our best goalie since he arrived.”

Peressini was acquired from the Worcester Railers in January. The 27-year-old netminder played parts of four seasons of college hockey at the University of Western Ontario, where he had a total of 31 wins.

“A great team effort these last few games, ” noted Peressini. “No goalie wins this award by himself. We are battling for a playoff spot and last week was definitely a step in the right direction”

The Allen Americans return to action this weekend with three games against the Toledo Walleye.
