ROCHESTER, NY - Sophomore goaltender Ali Binnington (Oakville, Ontario) of the RIT women's hockey team was named the College Hockey America (CHA) Goaltender of the Week on Monday, for the week ending Jan. 6, 2013. It is Binnington's third weekly honor of the season.

Binnington was tremendous in net for the Tigers, stopping 60-of-62 shots in a road weekend sweep at Robert Morris, who was receiving votes in the USCHO.com Division I national poll. On Friday, Binnington made 29 saves and helped RIT kill off a key five-minute major penalty early in the third period of a 2-1 win over the Colonials. She was named the game’s second star. On Saturday, she was even better, stopping 31-of-32 shots, to be named the game’s first star, as the Tigers upended Robert Morris by the same 2-1 score for RIT’s first ever weekend sweep over a CHA opponent. Binnington has now allowed just one goal in four straight games and is 7-4-2 this season with a 2.08 goals against average and .922 save percentage.

The Tigers kick off a five-game homestand starting on Saturday, when they host Colgate University at 2:05 p.m..
