The Bozeman Icedogs are pleased to announce that goalie AJ Ruskowski has been called up by the Minot Minotauros in the North American Hockey League (NAHL). Ruskowski joins Minot from the Bozeman Icedogs of the North American 3 Hockey League (NA3HL).
Ruskowski had a 4-0 record with Bozeman this season, with one shutout and a 1.50 goals-against average with a .959%. Last season he helped backstop Bozeman’s return to the postseason and a top-three finish in the Frontier League.
“We are very happy for the opportunity for AJ. He’s battled through adversity and never stopped putting in the work and improving his game,” said Bozeman Head Coach Elliot Bates. “He was a natural leader on this team from day one and he gave us a chance to win every night and we wish him nothing but the best at the next level.”
