Carson Limesand has made quite the impression early on for the Northeast Generals. He has 142 saves on 152 shots faced in four games, and has won three starts. His opening weekend of work against Danbury made him the first East Division Star of the week, and he put up a zero goals allowed in relief for them in their NAHL Showcase finale against Amarillo.
Limesand is a state champion from Orono Minnesota that plays an athletic style of goaltending with a celling at the next level of some college goaltending’s best, like former Lake Superior State Laker, Mareks Mitens. His style and ability to make routine saves with ease, combined with his strong hockey sense have helped him make saves at high volume in danger areas and work to limit rebound chances in dangerous areas. As Head Coach Bryan Erikson said when Limesand was tendered by the Generals “Carson is a very athletic goaltender that we think will have a huge impact on the team in 2021-22. Carson comes from a very good MN High School team where he put up great numbers. This past year Carson went 12-6 with a 2.56gaa and a .912 save percentage. We look forward to him transitioning smoothly to the junior level and working with our goalie coach Steve Mastalerz.”
So far, its safe to say the transition is going quite well. Mastalerz has helped accentuate Limesand’s style and has put him in a position to succeed early on. The team loves what he brings, as he already has two nicknames, ‘Limer’, and ‘Sando’ (Sando is the more popular one of the two). Limesand is a vocal leader, consistently bantering with his skaters, and he is quite vocal during games directing defenders and setting up outlet plays. Limesand’s future is bright, and Erikson and his staff are impressed not only with his skill, but with how he responded in relief after his first tough outing against the Minnesota Magicians. The staff saw more about him at the NAHL Showcase and were impressed.
