Boston Banshees netminder Michael Neuvirth has been voted the most valuable player of 2011-2012’s first quarter.

In 10 starts, Neuvirth went 9-0-1 with a league-best .941 save percentage, driving the Banshees to a surprising tie for most points. The Banshees flipped veteran winger Mike Knuble for the second-year goaltender from Charleston prior to the season.

Neuvirth picked up 63% of the Q1 MVP votes, doubling second-place Daniel Sedin of the Baltimore Crab. Salem’s Patrick Marleau was third with one vote.
