Ruegsegger 1st AHL Goal Wins Game

From: Winnepeg Free Press

On Monday night Tyler Ruegsegger's first American Hockey League goal kept the Abbotsford Heat's playoff chances alive.

Ruegsegger scored the game's only goal and Leland Irving turned aside 23 shots for his second consecutive shutout as the Heat defeated the Hamilton Bulldogs 1-0 Monday night.

Playing in his ninth game with the Heat, Ruegsegger redirected an Ales Kotalik one-timer past Bulldogs starter Drew MacIntyre on a power play 4:29 into the third period.

"It was definitely exciting to help the team win, but I thought it was a team effort tonight," Ruegsegger said. "I appreciate the confidence coach has in me out there and I came in here with the attitude I was going to work hard to help this team win."

Ruesegger's sister Becca won an NCAA award for her 4.0 GPA and led Wisconsin to an NCAA title as the starting goalie.

Well done, Becca. You've got to be impressed with those Ruegsegger parents - great athletes, students and citizens.

Now the most accomplished Colorado born female hockey player?
