Storm goaltender Clemente named EIHL player of the week

Manchester Storm goaltender Mike Clemente has been named EIHL Player of the Week for the period ending December 24th 2017.


The 27-year-old stopped 22 of the 23 shots he faced against Guildford on Friday night as the Storm snapped the Flames four game unbeaten streak, skating away with a 4-1 victory over the Surrey side.


Clemente followed that performance up with a 33-save effort in Nottingham on Saturday night, also stopping all three of the Panthers shootout attempts as the Storm secured a 2-1 victory after penalty shots.


As a result of the two performances, Clemente posted a 96.5% save percentage throughout the weekend, with the Storm moving back up into 3rd place in the Elite League standings as a result of their success.


The Storm are next in action on Boxing Day, when they welcome Dundee Stars to their Silverblades Ice Arena, Altrincham home (face-off 5:30pm).
