CORPUS CHRISTI, TEXAS – Former IceRays netminder Pheonix Copley picked up two shutouts over the weekend, including tournament MVP, as Michigan Tech captured the 2012 Great Lakes Invitational with victories over Michigan and 7th ranked Western Michigan.
Copley stopped 32 shots in the championship game at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, IL. With the two shutouts, the Alaska native became only the second goaltender in tournament history to post back-to-back shutouts, while also capturing the John MacInnes Trophy as the tournament's most valuable player.
With the IceRays in the 2010-2011 season, Copley played 42 games posting a .880 save percentage and 4.17, while being the backbone of Corpus Christi before moving to the USHL.
The IceRays are home this weekend as they host the Odessa Jackalopes. Coverage begins at 6:50PM with the IceRays Pregame Show on SportsJuice.com, ustream.com, and fasthockey.com.
