Nanooks goaltender Scott Greenham was named the CCHA goaltender of the month for October.

Here is the release from the Alaska Nanooks site.

FARMINGTON HILLS, MI — The Central Collegiate Hockey Association announced today that Alaska Nanooks sophomore goaltender Scott Greenham (Addison, ON) has been named the RBC Financial Group CCHA Player of the Month for October. This is the first time Greenham has earned the honor in his career.

Greenham, a 22-year-old from Addison, Ontario, led the Nanooks to a 5-0-1 record in October and leads the CCHA in winning percentage (.917), save percentage (.949) and goals-against average (1.14). His goals-against average ranks second in the nation and first among goaltenders to record more than 100 minutes. In addition, Greenham ranks sixth in Division I in save percentage and second among netminders who have faced more than 100 shots on goal.

The 6-foot-2, 197-pound sophomore has been named CCHA Goaltender of the Week two times through the first four weeks of play. Greenham was the first player to receive the honor after being named Most Outstanding Player in the Kendall Hockey Classic Oct. 10-11. He allowed just one combined goal in wins over then-No. 4/3 Michigan (2-0) and Mercyhurst (5-1) with a total of 43 saves. Greenham was recognized a second time after allowing just three goals, two of which came on the power play, during Alaska’s home sweep of Ferris State, Oct. 30-31.

Special mention for RBC Financial Group CCHA Player of the Month honors goes to Bowling Green freshman forward Jordan Samuels-Thomas, Ferris State senior forward Blair Riley, Lake Superior senior forward Zac MacVoy, Miami sophomore goaltender Cody Reichard, Michigan junior forward Matt Rust, Michigan State junior forward Corey Tropp, Nebraska-Omaha junior forward Rich Purslow, Northern Michigan junior forward Mark Olver, and Notre Dame senior defenseman Kyle Lawson.

The RBC Financial Group CCHA Rookie of the Month is Michigan State's Derek Grant, who is tied for first in the nation in scoring among rookies with 10 points, including four goals and six assists. Alaska Nanooks right wing Andy Taranto (Woodridge, IL) earned special mention for CCHA Rookie of the Month for October. Taranto has two goals and four assists in six games for the Blue and Gold.
