South Division Star of the Week: Cooper Seedot, goaltender, Point Mallard Ducks
It was literally a perfect weekend for the Point Mallard Ducks and goaltender Cooper Seedot. The 19-year-old native of Northville, MI, started both games against the Atlanta Capitals and shutout the Capitals both nights, stopping 75 shots in the two wins. On Friday, Seedot (6’1/175) stopped all 29 shots that came his way in a 3-0 shutout of the Caps. The next night, Seedot was even better, making 46 saves in another 3-0 win. It was his 2nd and 3rd shutouts of the year. Seedot has allowed just two goals in his last four appearances this season. “Cooper was outstanding both games. He is playing with a great deal of confidence right now. His teammates are feeding off of his energy and composure. He has a great work ethic and team first attitude. He is one of the leaders of this team,” said Ducks head coach Tom Winkler.
