1. Urban Lesjak (Celje PL)
In his final year in Celje, Lesjak was once again sensational. He was the pillar of their defensive set-up, often providing security and stability between the posts. Lesjak recorded 156 saves this season, as he helped Celje PL win the 3rd place at the SEHA – Gazprom League Final 4 in Skopje.
2. Klemen Ferlin (Gorenje Velenje)
Gorenje Velenje were a point shy of reaching the Final 4, largely thanks to Klemen Ferlin and his 155 saves. The Slovenian goalkeeper had the most saves in the regular season, but it was not enough to reach Skopje. A brilliant season is behind him!
3. Igor Chupryna (Tatran Presov)
Somehow, Tatran Presov players are involved in every major category. Chupryna represents the Slovakian champions in the defensive department with 140 saves made. One of the most energetic goalkeepers in the League, has always been a reliable figure in goal.
