Goaltender Eric Williams joins ECHL’s Colorado Eagles

The Colorado Eagles of the East Coast Hockey League have added former Spokane Chiefs goaltender Eric Williams to their roster.

Williams, whose 73 career wins rank third in Chiefs history, suited up for Colorado on Wednesday night but didn’t play.

Williams finished his 2013-14 Western Hockey League season with a record of 33-19-2-2 and career bests with a 2.71 goals-against average and .906 save percentage.

Williams, of Langley, British Columbia, came to the Chiefs during the 2011-12 season in a trade with Prince Albert.


Lindsey Matsunaga and Tori Hamura each hit a two-run home run to power the Pacific Lutheran Lutes (13-23, 10-14) to a 7-3 victory over the Whitworth Pirates (22-13, 14-9) in Northwest Conference play in Tacoma.

Julia Johnson and Shannon Wessel had run-scoring doubles in the seventh inning for the Pirates.

Madi Perez (11-5) took the loss for Whitworth.
