UAF goaltender Jones earns WCHA honor

Doyle Woody,Adn Staff

UAF freshman goaltender Davis Jones' first weekend between college pipes went well -- he helped lift the Nanooks to a second consecutive title at their Brice Alaska Goal Rush tournament.

And after backstopping the Nanooks to a 3-2 OT win over Denver and a 3-3 tie with Western Michigan -- UAF won the shootout 1-0 to take the title -- Jones today was named the WCHA's Rookie of the Week.

Jones stopped 54 of 59 shots (.915 save percentage) and was named to the all-tournament team.

He nicely represented those of us with two first names.
