Huntsville, Ala. – The Southern Professional Hockey League (SPHL) today announced goaltender Dan McWhinney of the Huntsville Havoc is the Easton Player of the Week for January 21-27. 

McWhinney went 2-0-0, posting a 0.54 goals against average and a .986 save percentage, stopping 73 of 74 shots last week.

In a 7-3 win over the Mississippi RiverKings on Friday, the native of Sault Ste Marie, Ontario stopped all 30 shots he faced before being ejected for his participation in a third-period altercation.

McWhinney currently ranks third on the all-time Havoc list for wins.
