While the goal-scoring offense has been a big part of the Arizona Sundogs' recent surge, goal-stopping goaltender Adam Russo has played a key role as well.

Russo started both games last week for the Sundogs, both against the CHL-leading Allen Americans. In Friday's 4-3 overtime win, the Montreal native stopped 27 of 30 shots, including 12 of 13 in the third period. Despite taking the loss in Saturday's game versus the Americans, Russo was spectacular turning away 44 of 46 shots in his team's 2-1 loss. Again it was the third period that tested him the most, with 21 shots fired his way in a final frame in which he racked up 20 saves.

For his efforts, the CHL announced Tuesday that Russo has been named the Oakley Central Hockey League Goaltender of the Week for the period ending Jan. 20. In recognition of his achievement, Russo will receive a special gift from Oakley.

Russo is the first Arizona goalie to win the award this season.

On the season, he is 10-6-3 with a 2.81 goals against average and a .911 save percentage. Saturday's one-goal loss was his first since Dec. 28, ending his personal six-game win streak.

Entering Tuesday night's game in Tulsa, the Sundogs, who have hovered near the bottom of the standings most of the season, had won seven of 10 games.
