Video: Swiss goalie Benjamin Conz makes amazing save

Now this is what coaches are talking about when they say a goalie is a battler.

The guy in the big pads is Benjamin Conz, who you might remember as the top goaltender of the 2010 World Juniors where he averaged more than 40 saves per game for the undermanned Swiss side. They didn't medal, but Conz was lights out.

That performance didn't get him drafted, but that doesn't mean we've heard the last of him -- especially if he can make stops like this.

Conz's Fribourg squad was matched up against the Zurich Lions in the third game of Swiss league's semifinals on Sunday night. He was magnificent in regulation, but it'll be this stop in the shootout against Zurich's Ryan Shannon that will have everyone talking.

Conz is completely beaten on the play, but maintains his focus and doesn't give up. Geez, what a beauty!

Fribourg won the game, 5-4, and took a 3-0 lead in the series.
