Nathan Lieuwen of the Greenville Road Warriors has been named the Reebok Hockey ECHL Goaltender of the week for the period Dec. 10-16.

The 21-year-old went 2-0-0 with one shutout, a 0.50 goals-against average and a save percentage of .983 in two appearances last week helping the Road Warriors extend their winning streak to four games.

Lieuwen made 26 saves to record his first pro shutout in a 6-0 win at South Carolina on Tuesday and followed that up with 31 saves in a 3-1 victory against Gwinnett on Thursday. He had a shutout streak of 147:20 snapped with 36 seconds remaining in the game.

A native of Abbotsford, British Columbia, Lieuwen has appeared in 19 games for Greenville this season posting a record of 10-7-1 with one shutout, a 3.01 goals-against average and a save percentage of .900. He ranks third in the ECHL with 506 saves and is fourth with 1,116 minutes played.

The former Kootenay ICE (WHL) standout has been the top guy in Greenville since being sent on loan from the Rochester Americans.

goaltending is looking pretty good for the organization...behind miller and enroth they have leggio holding the fort in rochester and two goalies--knapp and lieuwen--now in the pro ranks...plus they have ullmark making serious strides in sweeden and markov in junior...

that's a pretty good pipeline right now...

pegula and co. were villified for their free agent frenzy a while back, but little credit was given to the organization for their focus upon scouting and player development
