Aeros Sign G Tony Quesada


Goalie helped Crusaders pull NCAA shocker

HOUSTON, Texas – The American Hockey League’s Houston Aeros have signed goaltender Tony Quesada (kay-SAH-duh) to a contract for the 2006-07 season, the team announced Monday.

Quesada, 23 (11/7/82), comes off four standout seasons at Holy Cross, including a 22-6-2, 2.30 gaa campaign in 2005-06. Quesada helped the Crusaders to arguably the biggest upset in NCAA Tournament history, making 35 saves in a 4-3 overtime win over Minnesota. Possible Aeros teammate Danny Irmen played in the game for the Gophers. The Crusaders became the first No. 4 seed to ever take out a top seed, and it was their first-ever NCAA Tournament victory.

The 6-foot-2, 185-pound native of South Freeport, Maine, was named to the Atlantic Hockey All-Conference Second Team and Atlantic Hockey All-Tournament Team. Quesada was the Atlantic Hockey Goalie of the Week five times, and he led the conference in gaa. He was also a Walter Brown Award Semifinalist, given to the best American born collegiate hockey player in New England.

Quesada holds five of the Crusaders’ six goaltending records – wins (61), save pct (.915), gaa (2.50), games (105) and minutes (6034). In four seasons at Holy Cross, Quesada went 61-33-8 with a 2.50 gaa.
