Thrust into the starting role at Dartmouth College, former Langley Rivermen goalie James Kruger has shown heâ€™s up to the challenge.
The Minnetonka, Minnesota product won both his starts last weekend including a 23-save shutout of top-ranked Boston University.
The other victory was a 3-2 decision over American International College where he made 15 stops.
The Big Green, who play in the Eastern College Athletic Conference, are now 4-3-1 on the season with Kruger handling all the crease work. The 6â€™3â€ 205-pound net minder also carries a .930 save percentage, a 1.85 goals-against average and two shutouts.
As a member of the Rivermen in their inaugural season in 2011/12, Kruger posted a 10-22 mark with a 3.91 goals-against average and a .894 save percentage.
