CHF ECAC End of Year Awards

With the last weekend of the season rapidly approaching, here is how we think the ECAC End of the Year Awards will break down. Keep in mind the ECAC's propensity towards selecting upperclassmen and our unwavering homerism.

First Team:

F - TJ Treveylan - SLU - The league's leading scorer, and the heart and soul of the St. Lawrence offense. TJ has put up 1.5 points per game in conference play and has 1.28 points per game overall. This has been the crowning year on a career that has seen him put up 147 points in 142 games. TJ should be under consideration for the Hobey Baker trophy as well.

F - Mike Ouellette - Dartmouth - Has quietly put the Big Green into a top four spot after a very slow start. Leads Dartmouth in points with 30 which correlates with his four year average of one point per game, racking up 131 points in 130 games.

F - Kyle Wilson - Colgate - Leads the Raiders in scoring, goals scored, powerplay goals, and shorthanded goals. Leads the league with 22 goals, and is second in the conference with 10 powerplay goals. Is four points short of 100 for his career.

D - Reid Cashman - Quinnipiac - Has put up big numbers from the blue line and has helped Quinnipiac win some big games in their inaugural ECAC season. 32 assists leads the league, 35 points good for fifth amongst all league skaters.

D - Mike Madill - SLU - This was a tough choice, but Madill came through not just for his offensive stats, which are second best in terms of D-Men, but as the lone senior in SLU's D-Corps Madill has helped put SLU into position for a first round bye, and has anchored a young SLU defense.

G - Kris Mayotte - Union - The senior netminder has posted a .916 save percentage and a 2.45 GAA in 33 games. Mayotte is tied for second in the nation with five shutouts and has backboned the Dutchmen to home ice in the first round and a possible first round bye.

Second Team:
F - Nick Dodge - Clarkson - Dodge is tied for 2nd in points in the league with an impressive 1.16 points per game average in just his sophomore season. Dodge leads the Golden Knights in scoring and has proven that he deserves the A on his shoulder this season.

F - Kevin Croxton - RPI - RPI's leading scorer has filled the shoes of sidelined captain Kirk McDonald nicely. Paired with Oren Ezienman and Jonathan Ornelas the combo proved early on to be one of the most potent lines in the ECAC this year.

F - Matt Moulson - Cornell - Tenth in the league in scoring with 32 points for a 1.19 point per game average. Moulson has been the standout on a Cornell team that has epitomized the word team this year. Leads the Big Red and the league with 11 power play goals and has anchored the Big Red in his senior season.

D - Keith McWilliams - RPI - Has provided a lift for RPI when the team was struggling to find goals. His nine goals lead all ECAC defensemen. 20 points good for fourth on the team in scoring.

D - Ryne O'Byrne - Cornell - In Cornell head coach's system defense is key. The biggest part of this system is Ryne O'Byrne. When O'Byrne is healthy the Big Red benefit and have the capability of winning on any given night. While the offensive numbers aren't there for O'Byrne, this year one can not discount his value on the blue line.

G - Mark Dekanich - Colgate - Leads the league in GAA and save percentage in conference play. Overall has posted a 2.46 GAA and a .917 save percentage to lead Colgate to what will probably be a first round bye.

F - David Marshall - Quinnipiac - Second amongst rookies in scoring with 28 points with 15 of these coming in league play. 18 goals leads all rookies. Two game winners in league play leads the Bobcats.

F - Shea Guthrie - Clarkson - Has been a main part of Clarkson's offense with 25 points, good for fourth on the team. Two game winners, including one over St. Lawrence, leads the team.

D - Nick St. Pierre - Colgate - Has played in all 32 of Colgates games to date. 14 points is second amongst rookie defensemen, and place him in the top ten in points on the team.

D - Matt Generous - SLU - Leads rookie D-Men in scoring with 15 points. 13 points have come in ECAC play.
