Midwest Division Star of the Week: Josh Seeley, Goaltender, Minnesota Magicians

The Minnesota Magicians stayed in the Midwest Division playoff race thanks to a weekend sweep of their home-and-home series with the Chippewa Steel. In goal for both wins was 20-year-old netminder Josh Seeley. The 6’4/201 lbs. native of Trenton, MI, stopped 64 of 66 shots in the two wins. On Friday, Seeley mad 23 saves in a 4-2 road win. On Saturday, he posted his first shutout of the season and made 41 saves in a 4-0 win. Since joining the Magicians in February, Seeley has posted a 3-0-2 record with a 2.86 goals against average and a .919 save percentage. “Josh had a great weekend for us. We got Josh right before the trade deadline because we were looking for an experienced guy to come in for the playoff push and so far he’s been solid for us. We look to continue our success from this past weekend as a team and goaltending is obviously a big part of that. He’s been a good addition on the ice as well as off the ice. He likes to keep it loose, have fun and has fit right into the room like he’s been here all by year.
