Shortly after Northeastern came off arguably their best goaltending performance of the young season, news broke that the Huskies earned the verbal commitment of Quentin Sigurdson, a goaltender currently playing for the Odessa Jackalopes of the North American Hockey League.
Sigurdson is a 2003 birth year and hails from Sartell, Minnesota. He stands 6-foot-2, catches with his left hand (traditional for goalies), and currently has a .939 save percentage in 15 games with Odessa in the NAHL. It’s his second season with the Jackalopes, after saving .909 in 15 games last year. He has a 1.93 goals-against-average this year with one shutout, after a 2.87 GAA last year. He has also played for the Granite City Lumberjacks of the NA3HL, with whom he won the league’s Rookie of the Year award, played for Sartell-Stephen High School in Minnesota, and multiple other junior programs in Minnesota as well. He’s had a save percentage well north of .900 each of the last four years as he’s continued to develop.
Noted to be a goalie with an excellent work ethic who pushes himself and teammates to get better every practice, we expect Sigurdson to be the replacement for Connor Hopkins when the graduate student finishes up at Northeastern this spring. That will give the program four goalies for next season again, with Cameron Whitehead, Grant Riley, and Harrison Chesney all projected to be back. With his success at the junior level, Sigurdson will compete for the backup role with Riley.
Congratulations to Quentin on his commitment to Northeastern!
As always, go Huskies!
