SAN FRANCISCO, California – The San Francisco Bulls Professional Hockey Team, proud affiliate of the San Jose Sharks, announced today that Thomas Heemskerk was named the Reebok Hockey ECHL Goaltender of the Week for November 19-25.

He then stopped 28 Ontario Reign shots on Friday in a 5-1 win at the Cow Palace against the Pacific Division leaders. Heemskerk finished the weekend with 34 saves in a 6-3 win at home against the Stockton Thunder. Heemskerk leads the league with 462 saves.
