The 6-foot-3 Oettinger just finished a year with the U.S. National Under-17 Team, posting a .916 save percentage to go along with a 2.57 goals-against average. He also had three games with the U-18s, finishing with a 3-0 record.
This came after a 2013-14 season in which Oettinger put together a 1.86 goals-against average at Lakeville High School in Minnesota. He helped backstop the team to the Minnesota State Tournament Class 2A title game, earning all-tournament team honors.
