Midwest Division Star of the Week: Chase Munroe, goaltender, Minnesota Wilderness
Minnesota Wilderness goalie Chase Munroe, 20, was busy this past week at the NAHL Showcase appearing in all four games. The native of Naperville, IL, faced a total of 78 shots in the better part of four games and stopped 74 of them for a 94.8% save percentage and a 1.09 goals against average during the event. Munroe (6’4/216) allowed just a single goal in wins over Odessa and Amarillo. He then was perfect in a relief appearance in a 3-2 loss against Lone Star. He allowed two goals in a 2-1 overtime loss to Aberdeen on the final day. Munroe is in his third and final season in the NAHL. “Chase had very solid showcase. That kind of play gives us a chance to win every game,” said Wilderness head coach Corey Millen.
