Masalskis named KHL's ''Goaltender of the Week''

Edgars Masalskis.
 MOSCOW (Russia), Feb 19 - Latvian national team goaltender Edgars Masalskis, who currently plays for Russian ice hockey club Khanty-Mansiysk "Yugra", was named the Kontinental Ice Hockey League's (KHL) ''Goaltender of the Week'' last week.

In ''Yugra's'' final two games of the season, Masalskis did not allow any goals, and saved 28 and 30 shots on goal respectively. These were also the first shutouts for the Latvian in the KHL this season.

Despite the two wins, ''Yugra'' did not qualify for the KHL playoffs, finishing in overall 9th in the Eastern Conference standings.

Both ''Yugra'' and Latvian ice hockey club Riga ''Dinamo'' will now compete in a special post-season tournament called the Hope Cup, which will kick-off later this week.
