UNO Maverick Hockey sophomore goalie Simon Latkoczy snags the #5 play in the NCHC Top 5 Plays of the Week – Jan. 9, 2024. 

Latkoczy’s featured save came at the 16:56 mark in the 3rd period of the Jan. 6 game at Arizona St. in the Desert Hockey Classic.

Latkoczy stopped an initial shot by ASU freshman defenseman Anthony Dowd, then he shifted to make a pad save on the rebound, thwarting Sun Devil junior forward Jackson Niedermayer’s attempt (Niedermayer is the son of NHL Hall of Famer Scott Niedermayer). 

The native of Trencin, Slovakia, had 33 saves in the game against Arizona St. 

Omaha went on to lose the contest 2-1 in overtime. 

Latkoczy currently has a 2.44 goals against average and a .911 save percentage this season for the Mavericks.
