Zatkoff Recalled By Pittsburgh
The Pittsburgh Penguins recalled goaltender Jeff Zatkoff from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton today, it was announced by executive vice president and general manager Ray Shero.
Zatkoff, 25, posted a 26-20 record in 49 games during his first year in the Pittsburgh organization. Zatkoff finished the regular season with a league-best 1.93 goals-against average and a .920 save percentage while posting five shutouts.
A native of Detroit, Michigan, Zatkoff and fellow netminder Brad Thiessen combined to win the Harry “Hap” Holmes Memorial Award, which goes to the goaltending duo that allows the fewest goals in the AHL. He and Thiessen combined to allow just 178 goals while helping the Penguins qualify for the postseason for the 11th-consecutive year.
Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Color Commentator, Mike O'Brien chatted with Zatkoff before the goaltender hit the road for Pittsburgh.
