Alumni Report: Delia Named AHL Player of the Week


Former Merrimack goaltender Collin Delia was named the AHL Player of the Week this past week, after backstopping the Rockford Ice Hogs to a pair of wins, including his first career shutout.

Delia turned aside 72 of the 73 total shots he faced last week. The netminder finished the week with a 0.50 GAA, .986 save percentage and the first shutout of his professional career. Last Wednesday evening, Delia made 38 saves to anchor Rockford’s defense in a 2-1 victory over the Texas Stars. Two games later, Delia stopped each of his 34 shots faced in a 3-0 blanking of the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins on Saturday night at the BMO Harris Bank Center. Delia was named the game’s first star in each of the two contests last week.
