Josh Robinson of the Missouri Mavericks on Thursday was named the Warrior Hockey ECHL Goaltender of the Year for the 2015-16 season.
“It is a big honor to receive such an incredible award, but none of this would be possible without the great support I have had all season from the Mavericks coaching staff, my teammates’ incredible play around me, and of course our fans,” said Robinson, who was voted to the All-ECHL first team last week. “Individual awards are the product of great team success and I owe everything to the guys in our locker room.”
The award is presented annually to the league’s top goaltender and is determined in a vote of ECHL coaches, broadcasters, media relations directors and media members.
Robinson finished the regular season with a league-leading 1.88 goals-against average, which ranks as fourth-best in a single season in ECHL history. He also had a league-best .931 save percentage and ranked second with 28 wins.
Robinson, 26, went 28-2-1 during the regular season and posted a personal 21-game winning streak from Nov. 4 through Feb. 14. That stretch set a league record for the longest winning streak by a goaltender. Robinson allowed two or fewer goals in 22 of his 31 starts during the regular season.
