NAPHL alum Swayman wins Mike Richter Award

April 13, 2020

Jeremy Swayman was an NAPHL All-Star during the 2015-16 season.

University of Maine junior and former NAPHL goaltender Jeremy Swayman has been awarded the 2020 Mike Richter Award, given annually to the best nation's top goaltender, it was announced Saturday night, April 11th on ESPN's SportsCenter.
 
Swayman, who was the First Team All-CHN goaltender, was also part of the Hobey Hat Trick, meaning he placed in the top three.  Swayman is the fourth player in Hockey East history to collect the award in its seven-year history.
 
Earlier this year, Swayman was named the 2019-20 Hockey East Player of the Year, the first Maine goaltender to win Hockey East’s top individual honor and the first Black Bear to be so named since Spencer Abbot in 2011-12.
 
Swayman played the entire 2015-16 season in the NAPHL for the Pikes Peak Miners 18U team. In 18 regular season games played, Swayman posted a 9-8-1 record with a 1.79 goals against average and a 94.0% save percentage. His four shutouts tied for the NAPHL 18U lead and he ranked 3rd in save percentage. Swayman also was selected to and played in the 2015-16 NAPHL 18U All-Star Game in Troy, Michigan.
 
Overall, Swayman was 18-11-5 and led the NCAA in saves with 1,099. His save percentage of .939 ranked second among all goaltenders in the nation, while his 2.07 goals against average was good for 15th. Minnesota State's Dryden McKay was first in the country with a .940 save percentage, though faced about 400 fewer shots.
 
A 2017 fourth-round draft choice of the Boston Bruins who signed his entry level contract on March 17, Swayman had 25 games of at least 30 saves this season, including five outings with at least 40 stops.
