The Manitoba Moose, in conjunction with the American Hockey League, announced today Moose goaltender Thomas Milic is the Howie's Hockey Tape AHL Player of the Week for the period ending March 17.

Milic, 20, started all three games for the Moose during the week, posting a 3-0-0 record, as Manitoba built a six-point lead for the final playoff spot in the Central Division. The rookie netminder allowed just four goals on 85 shots for a 1.30 goals-against average and a .953 save percentage.

The Port Coquitlam, B.C. native opened the week with his first career AHL shutout in a 6-0 win over Milwaukee. Milic made 29 saves, including 13 in the third period, to blank the division-leaders. The Winnipeg Jets 2023 fifth round selection then turned aside 21 shots, including five in overtime, before stopping all five attempts in the shootout for a 3-2 win against the Chicago Wolves. Milic followed up with 31 saves the next night as part of a 6-2 victory over the Wolves. He stopped 11 of 12 shots in the third period to hold off a Chicago charge.

Milic, the third-youngest goaltender in the AHL this season, holds an 11-5-1 record in 19 appearances, supported by a 2.63 goals-against average and a .908 save percentage. This month, Milic has a 6-0-0 record with a 1.98 goals-against average and .929 save percentage.
