by Nicola Karasik /

Zachary Sawchenko has been selected as the 'Sharks Prospect of the Week' for the week of Jan. 6 after posting two straight wins, including a .951 save percentage (SV%) and a season-high 37 saves (Jan. 4) for the San Jose Barracuda, San Jose's top American Hockey League (AHL) development affiliate.

This season, Sawchenko has played three games in the AHL with the Barracuda, registering a 2-0-1 record, a 1.98 goals-against-average (GAA) and a .931 SV%, and has appeared in 13 games in the ECHL with the Allen Americans, going 8-2-3 with a 2.35 GAA, a .930 SV%, and a pair of shutouts. 

During the 2018-19 campaign, the 22-year-old was named a second-team conference All-Star after leading the University of Alberta Golden Bears to a 16-2-0 record, with a conference-best 1.46 GAA, .926 SV%, and a new single-season record of five shutouts.

The six-foot-one, 185-pound goalie from Calgary, Alberta was recalled to the Barracuda from the ECHL on December 31, 2019.
