An impressive start as the sole goalie for Miners Hockey Club, Alek Lazarski will return for his sophomore season. Lazarski played a major role in the Miners inaugural season. During the 2015-16 regular season Lazarski had 676 saves in 22 games.
With Lazarski back in net for the Miners, 2016-17 looks to be just as promising. “Overall we had a good first season. We made it through the first season hiccups and I’m looking forward to the new teams in our division, adding more players, and becoming a more competitive player,” notes Lazarski about the Miner inaugural season.
Coach Herman commented on Lazarski’s first season, “Alek was a major part of our first season. We relied heavily on him as our last line of defense. We will once again rely on his work ethic and leadership on and off the ice as well as the classroom. By adding key players in front of him, Alek should have another great season at UTEP.”
This off season Lazarski will trade in his pads for a lab coat and spend his summer interning with the University of Washington. With the goal of getting a degree in Biochemistry the Miner goalie just completed his first semester as a peer tutor for the College of Science.
