Joe Fallon Named Player of the Week

Congrats to Aeros goalie Joe Fallon who, today, was named the AHL's Player of the Week for that incredible stretch of games he just played. He went 4-0, stopping 120 of 125 of shots. That included Saturday and Sunday when he played 130 minutes of hockey and went 13 rounds in the shootout over the two games.

Meanwhile, in related news, Fallon may be getting some rest as Matt Hackett has been returned to the Aeros from the Wild.

And Andrew, seeing as how you enjoyed the last Barry Gibb Talk Show clip I included with a Fallon post, here's another. And don't forget, everybody congratulate Joe Fallon for an incredible week of hockey.

Congratulations to Joe Fallon for this Honor and his outstanding performance, which reset the Aeros back on the road to a playoff berth.

Fans will recall that young Darcy Kuemper (the Sunshine Kid) was also honored as the Reebok Player of the Week in early December.

It is interesting that Matt Hackett (whose WILD recalls gave both of these players the opening and opportunity to demonstrate their excellence) has never been recognized as Reebok Player of the Week over the course of 2 seasons.

Go Aeros!
