University of Denver sophomore goalie Marc Cheverie, who had four conference road wins, is the Hockey Commissioners' Association National Division I Player of the Month for December.
Cheverie, a Florida Panthers draft pick in 2006, led the Pioneers to a perfect 4-0-0 record in December, posting a 1.28 GAA and .945 Spct. He started off the month by picking up his second shutout of the season, at Michigan Tech, and didn't allow a goal in eight of 12 periods while between the pipes. Cheverie allowed only five total goals and helped the Denver penalty kill go 22-for-24 (91.7%).
The Cole Harbour, Nova Scotia, native made 86 stops in December including back-to-back 21 save performances against nationally-ranked Minnesota State. The netminder now has a record of 13-6-2 with a 2.22 GAA and .923 Save % and has recorded two shutouts on the season.
