Former NAHL and current University of Michigan goaltender Shawn Hunwick was named the CCHA goaltender of the month for January.

The Central Collegiate Hockey Association announced today that former NAHL and current University of Michigan senior Shawn Hunwick has been named the Gongshow Goaltender of the Month for January.

Hunwick appeared in five games for Michigan during the month of January, posting a 4-1 record with one shutout, a 1.09 goals-against average and a .971 save percentage. Hunwick earned wins in his first three appearances, allowing just two goals total in those games.

The 5-foot-7, 166-pound goaltender set a career high with 46 saves, for his third shutout of the season, in Michigan’s 4-0 win at Ohio State on Jan. 13 and stopped 31 shots to help the Wolverines to a 4-1 win over Ohio State in the Frozen Diamond Faceoff on Jan. 15 at Progressive Field in Cleveland, Ohio.  He also made 38 saves in a 2-1 win on Jan. 20, as Michigan salvaged a road split with Notre Dame.

The Sterling Heights, Mich., native currently ranks second in the CCHA with a 2.07 goals-against average and is tied for ninth nationally in save percentage at .928.

Prior to attending the University of Michigan, Hunwick spent a year developing and playing in the North American Hockey League (NAHL) during the 2006-07 season for the Alpena IceDiggers.  He appeared in 31 games for Alpena during the 2006-07 season, posting a 17-9-2 record.
