Bears' Oldham gets Star of Week

Kenai River Brown Bears goaltender Kris Oldham was given the Midwest Division Star of the Week by the North American Hockey League on Monday.

Saturday, Oldham, a 16-year-old from Anchorage, shut out the Minnesota Wilderness in a 3-0 win. The 6-foot-4, 215-pound netminder made 33 saves in the game. Oldham is now 5-3-2 with a 2.95 goals-against average and 91.1 save percentage.

“We needed a lift this weekend and Kris came through with a great performance on Saturday night,” Brown Bears head coach Geoff Beauparlant said in a released statement. “He was confident and focused all game long and saved his best hockey for the last period when we were shorthanded for a long period of time.”

Bears forward Matt Rudin was given honorable mention. Rudin had two assists Saturday and now has 10 points in his last 10 games.
