Patriots Score Big with All Capital Hockey Conference Honors

The Capital Hockey Conference announced league honors and the varsity Patriots are well represented.  Each team coaching staff is asked to vote for 1 goalie, 3 forwards and 3 defensemen who they believe best represent the top talent of our league at each position.  Coaches are NOT permitted to vote for their own players so this is true honor based on how their individual play throughout the entire season is perceived by each of the conference coaching staffs.

The league has also recognizes players who excel with their academics throughout the hockey season.  First team All-Academic players must achieve a 3.75 or higher gpa and 2nd team All-Academic honors are given to those players who earn a 3.5 - 3.74 gpa.  Congratulations Patriots!
