Scott Greenham



Arts and Science


Greenham had been a solid student at UAF, making the Dean’s List (3.5 GPA or better) in the Spring of 2010 and 2011 and the Chancellor’s List (4.0 GAP)in the Fall of 2009. While Greenham’s numbers between the pipes are impressive, he is a well-rounded student-athlete and maintains a 3.57 GPA in the classroom.


Coach Ferguson says:“Scott Greenham is a person who has been a great role model for his teammates and fellow students on campus. He is very respectful and courteous to everyone that he interacts with. Alaska Hockey’s values serve as a guideline for what we want to represent in a person and program. These values include words like selfless service, loyalty, integrity, respect, honor, teamwork,  and sacrifice. Through Scott’s career he has believed in these values and has always strove to represent these values to the fullest degree.”


In his time as a Nanook, Greenham has volunteered countless hours alongside his teammates. His volunteer activities have included participation in “Sports Night” at the Denali Center (facility for the elderly) and “Nooks For Books,” a program where players visit, read and talk about the importance of developing reading skills with Fairbanks area elementary school kids (at Ladd, Wood River, Barnett, and Joy Elementary schools). Greenham and his teammates also sponsor an underprivileged young African boy named Zachary through World Vision, giving money to provide for his basic needs. He has been active in the hockey program’s annual Women’s Hockey 101, helping educate women of all ages in Fairbanks about the sport of hockey, and the UAF Hockey Community Skill clinics. He has also been involved in Youth Group on Fort Wainwright and has participated in volunteer efforts while the team was on the road, making a visit to the Senior Center in Grand Rapids, Michigan.


After playing in 79 consecutive games for Alaska, Greenham got his first rest in three seasons on Oct. 14, 2011. He returned to the Nanooks’ cage on Oct. 15 with a 31 save performance in a 4-1 victory over then-ranked #15/16 Nebraska-Omaha. He backstopped the Nanooks to their first CCHA win on Nov. 18, with a 25-save shutout performance in a 2-0 upset of then-ranked #6 Ferris State, good for his ninth career shutout. The following week, he became the first Nanook netminder to record back-to-back shutouts on the road, earning the 10th and 11th of his career and third in a four-game span with 3-0 and 2-0 decisions at Bowling Green on Nov. 25-26. He made 72 saves in a split series with then-ranked #19 Michigan (Dec. 2-3), including a season-high 41 on Dec. 3, when Alaska lost 1-0 in overtime. He backstopped the Nanooks to a 6-3 victory over then-ranked #4 Notre Dame on Jan. 27.

Entering his senior season, Greenham had made 77 consecutive appearances between the pipes for Alaska. He was a 2011-12 CCHA Preseason All-Conference Second Team selection after a successful junior campaign for the Blue and Gold, when he posted a 16-17-5 record to go with a goals-against average of 2.23 and a save percentage of .917. Over the course of the season he earned MVP of the Brice Alaska Gold Rush, was crowned Alaska’s Pernai Cup Champion, garnered CCHA All-Conference Second Team honors and earned the team’s Steve Moria MVP Award. He has five career CCHA Goalie of the Week awards, one CCHA Player of the Month awards, two all-tournament team honors, and holds several of Alaska’s goaltending records, including career shutouts (11), career wins (43), career ties (198), career goals-against average (2.18) and career save percentage (.918). He is second in career games played (100) and third for career saves (2,438) as well.
