The Owatonna Express has announced that goaltender Mike Shibrowski will join the Colorado College (WCHA) hockey team after the holiday break.
In 23 appearances with the Express this season, Shibrowski, a 19-year-old from Edina, Minn., holds a 14-4-2 record to compliment a 3.09 goals-against average and a .895 save percentage.
“We're excited for Mike to be able to go to such a good school and a good hockey program,” said Express head coach Pat Cullen. “He’s worked extremely hard and is very deserving of this opportunity.”
Shibrowski will be the second NAHL goaltender to join a Division I program following the holiday break; the St. Louis Bandits’ Garrett Bartus will also begin his college career at the University of Connecticut (Atlantic Hockey) in January.
