Our next featured player is Holland native Zach Nagelvoort. The Compuware product is entering his second season between the pipes for the Michigan Wolverines. Last year, as a freshman, the 20-year-old ended up taking over between the pipes for Red Berenson’s squad, eventually playing in 24 games and recording a 11-9-3 record with a 2.20 goals-against average and .929 save percentage. That save percentage number is second on the school’s single-season record list, behind only to Shawn Hunwick’s .932 mark in the 2011-12 season. Nagelvoort’s impressive freshman season resulted in him hearing his name called at the NHL Draft, as well; Edmonton selected the Wolverines netminder in the 4th round (111th overall) this past June.
