UPEI goaltender Wayne Savage was named the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS) male athlete of the week on Wednesday.

The fourth-year arts student from St. Thomas, Ont., turned aside 72 of 74 shots fired his way to lead the Panthers to a pair of road wins over the two teams that sit right behind them in the Atlantic University Sport (AUS) standings.

The former OHL netminder made 34 saves on Friday in a 3-0 shutout win against St. F.X. and added 38 saves in Saturday’s 3-2 victory over Saint Mary’s. He also assisted on the game-winning goal Saturday by sending teammate Chris DeSousa on a breakaway.

Nicole Clarke, a basketball player from the University of Regina, was the female athlete of the week.
