Belleville’s Sogaard named American Hockey League Goaltender of the Month

November 1, 2023

Belleville Senators netminder Mads Sogaard has been named the American Hockey League’s Goaltender of the Month for October.

The league made the announcement today, following a stellar week for “The Great Dane”, who made five appearances for the Senators in October and went 3-1-0 with a 1.73 goals-against average and a .944 save percentage, stopping 135 of 144 shots overall.

Sogaard began the 2023-24 season by recording his first professional shutout, a 30-save effort in Belleville’s 3-0 win at Hershey on Oct. 14. The next afternoon in Lehigh Valley, he came on in relief early in the second period and went on to stop all 22 shots he faced. Sogaard extended his shutout streak to 116:07 before allowing his first goal of the season on Oct. 21 vs. Laval, but he still finished with 30 saves to earn the victory. Finally, Sogaard closed the month by turning aside 42 of 43 shots to lead the Senators to a 2-1 overtime win over Toronto on Oct. 27.

Sogaard, 22, is in his fourth pro season after being selected by Ottawa in the second round of the 2019 NHL Draft. The native of Aalborg, Denmark, has appeared in 69 career AHL games with Belleville and has a record of 35-25-3 with a 2.90 GAA, a .907 save percentage and one shutout. Sogaard has also played 21 games in the NHL, including 19 appearances during the 2022-23 season.

Along with Sogaard, Springfield Thunderbirds forward Adam Gaudette was named the AHL Player of the Month and Laval Rocket forward Joshua Roy was named AHL Rookie of the Month.
