Sibell named Central Division Star of the Week

Apr 5, 2021

It was another perfect weekend for the Aberdeen Wings and goaltender Jack Sibell.

The 21-year-old native of Isanti, MN, posted shutouts in both wins this weekend as he continued his assault on the NAHL record books. The 6’2″, 206 lb. Niagara University commit stopped a combined 69 shots in two wins over the Minnesota Wilderness, which included 31 saves in a 3-0 shutout on Friday and 38 saves in another 3-0 shutout on Saturday.

For the season, Sibell has an outstanding 33-0-1 record with 1.09 goals against average and a .957 save percentage. His 10 shutouts this season are one shy of tying the NAHL single season record of 11.

“Jacob was the backbone to the success we had this weekend,” Wings head coach Scott Langer said. “He continues to perform at an elite level, allowing this team to take points each weekend. Jacob also broke our franchise record for shutouts with 10, which eclipsed the record of another great goalie from our past, Matt Vernon. Each weekend he gives his best and continues to impress.”

Honorable mention: Spencer Schneider

Wings assistant captain Spencer Schneider had two game-winning goals in Aberdeen’s weekend sweep of the Wilderness. Overall on the season, he has 21 goals and 13 assists in 40 games played.
