Alex Lyon (Yale/ECACHL), G, 6-1, 200, So., Baudette, Minn. (Lake of the Woods High School)

The 2011 Frank Brimsek winner as the state's top senior goalie is off to a solid start to his sophomore campaign at Yale.

Starting all six of the Bulldogs' games thus far, he has posted a 3-1-2 record with a 1.82 goals against average and a .937 save percentage.

This past weekend, Lyon stopped 59 of 61 shots in picking up two league road wins for the Bulldogs. The Yale goaltender turned in a solid performance with 26 saves against the Dartmouth, Friday.

The following evening he was inaugural recipient of the Tim Taylor Cup, presented to the most valuable player of the Yale-Harvard game, at Bright-Landry Center. He stopped 33 of 34 shots to help Yale take a 2-1 win and knock its rival from the ranks of the unbeaten.

His efforts on the weekend resulted in being named the ECAC Hockey League's goalie of the week.

A three-sport standout at Lake of the Woods, Lyon was an all-state selection in hockey as a senior, a two-time all-conference pick in football and a two-time all-section selection in baseball in addition to being an honor roll student.

He followed his high school career with two outstanding seasons in the USHL with the Omaha Lancers, where he was a two-time team MVP, USHL All-Rookie Team member in 2012 and a second-team All-USHL pick in 2013.

Alex Lyon is off to a 3-1-2 start for Yale this season.
