Anchorage Loses Goalie

     Anchorage Daily News beat writer Doyle Woody had this information Monday on the departure of Alaska Anchorage junior goalie Bryce Christianson:

     WASILLA, Alaska — Bryce Christianson of Anchorage, who would have been a senior at Alaska Anchorage in 2010-11, is done with the Seawolves.

     Christianson was Monday’s emergency backup goaltender for the Stockton Thunder in their East Coast Hockey League playoff opener against the Alaska Aces.

     Christianson’s departure means the Seawolves surely are looking to sign a goalie recruit — senior Jon Olthuis finished his career last month and the only goalie left on the roster is Dusan Sidor, who has barely played. The Seawolves have freshman Rob Gunderson coming from the Alberta Junior Hockey League, but certainly need a third goalie.

     In 2009-10, Christianson went 3-8-0 with a 4.37 goals-against average and .848, and basically fell out of favor with Anchorage coach Dave Shyiak.
