Ohio State Adding USHL Goalie Frey
by Brandon Gee/CHN Reporter
After losing its top two netminders in November, Ohio State has made a move to replenish the position by making a scholarship offer to Christian Frey from Dubuque of the USHL, according to Dubuque's website.
The 20-year-old netminder from Arlington, Texas, has accepted and will enroll at the school this month. Frey will officially leave the Saints after their game on December 14.
Currently one of the USHL's top goalies, Frey has posted a 9-3-0 record this season with 2.08 goals against average and .918 save percentage.
After Ohio State lost season starter Collin Olson to the USHL over a playing time issue, and his replacement Matt Tomkins a week later to a leg injury, third-string freshman Logan Davis was thrust into the starting role. This left the staff scrambling to fill out depth at the position, grabbing a former high school goalie and Ohio State baseball player Adam Gretz along with a player from the school’s club team.
Frey is enrolling at the university in the coming weeks and should be ready to go when the Buckeyes hit the ice next, Dec. 28, as they open a series at home against Mercyhurst.
