Lake Superior State adds Goaltender
|Lake Superior State has landed a commitment from Kevin Murdock, goaltender of the United States Hockey League's Lincoln Stars. Murdock will play for the Laker's starting in the fall of 2011. Murdock played for Lincoln from 2007-2009 making 50 appearances over two years before going to Minnesota State Mankato during the 2009-10 season where he posted a 1-3-1 record in 5 games and posting a 3.46 GAA, 0.895 SV%. Murdock returned to Lincoln in this past season earning team MVP honors while appearing in 52 games and posting a 2.91 GAA, and 0.907 SV%. Murdock was second in the USHL with 29 wins this season.|
Murdock coming to LSSU probably brings into question the development of Traverse City North Stars Tyler Marble and current LSSU goaltender Niels-Erik Ravn. Marble was 25-14-1 for the North Stars this season with a 2.88 GAA and 0.891 SV% before being replaced as Traverse City's number one goaltender after they acquired Steve Bolton from Amarillo who went 11-1 with a .931 save percentage, 1.79 GAA and two shutouts in 13 games with the North Stars after being acquired from Amarillo.
