Notre Dame senior Forrest Karr (Madison, Wis.) has been named the Central Collegiate Hockey Association defensive player of the week for the second time this season, following a 48-save performance last week in wins over Bowling Green (4-1) and Miami (2-0).

Karr allowed just one goal during the weekend-a second-period, power-play score by the Falcons-while directing an Irish defense that killed nine of 10 opponent power-play chances. He had 26 saves in the win at BG and 22 versus Miami for his second career shutout.

Karr's 2.59 season goals-against average is on pace to best the Notre Dame record of 2.70, set last season by four-year starter Matt Eisler, while Karr's .901 season save percentage ranks third in Irish history. Karr is the fifth Notre Dame goaltender ever to post two career shutouts and is the first to post two shutouts in the same season, with his earlier shutout coming after a 16-save effort in the 3-0 win over No. 9 Ohio State on Oct. 23.

During the current Irish three-game winning streak, Karr has totaled 83 saves and just four goals allowed (three of them on the power play), including a 35-save performance in the 4-3 win at No. 1 North Dakota. In 20 games overall this season, Karr has allowed just 23 even-strength goals.

For his career, Karr owns a record of 20-17-3 (including 18-9-3 during the past two season, 12-7-1 on the road and 4-3-2 vs. top-10 teams). He is 5-0-0 in his career vs. Bowling Green, including 4-0-0 at the BGSU Ice Arena.

Karr also earned CCHA defensive player of the week honors on Oct. 11, after totaling 43 saves and allowing just one even-strength goal in wins over Lake Superior (4-2) and Western Michigan (7-1).
