College Hockey:
Pateman’s Senior Season Cut Short



MSU-Mankato goalie Eric Pateman, out of the lineup since injuring his shoulder on Oct. 20, will miss the remainder of his senior season. He will apply for a medical redshirt with the hopes of retaining one more year of eligibility next season.

Pateman, a three-year starter for the Mavericks, injured his shoulder in the Mavericks’ 4-3 win at Minnesota-Duluth. This week, it was determined he will require surgery.

The McAuley, Manitoba, native has seen action in three games this year, compiling a 1-1 record and 5.43 goals against average.

In his four seasons with the Mavericks, Pateman has amassed a won-loss record of 49-32-8, a 3.05 goals against average and a save percentage of .904. He owns school records for career shutouts (seven) and assists by a goaltender (seven), and entered the season ranking third on MSU’s all-time lists for wins, saves and games played.

His .904 career save percentage and 3.05 goals against average both rank first all-time at MSU.
