The North American Hockey League (NAHL) has announced that Janesville Jets goaltender Geoff Sadjadi has been named the Sherbrook Hockey Goaltender of the Month for December.
Sadjadi, a 20-year-old from Faribault, Minn., fashioned a perfect 4-0 record over the month to compliment a 2.20 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage. In one of those four victories - a 2-1 decision over the Motor City Metal Jackets on Dec. 5 - Sadjadi stopped all five shots in the shootout.
“Geoff had a great December and has played a big role in our recent success,” said Jets head coach Dane Litke. “He works hard and is a very dedicated athlete. He’s also very competitive and we hope his strong play continues for the rest of the season.”
Sadjadi, who started the season with the Alaska Avalanche, holds a 10-4 record in 14 NAHL appearances this season to go along with a 2.77 goals-against average and a .897 save percentage.
