UMass-Lowell and New Hampshire were the only two schools with multiple selections, which included goaltender Casey DeSmith (Rochester, N.H.) and defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk (Middletown, N.J.) from the Wildcats and the River Hawks defenseman Zack Kamrass (Atlanta, Ga.), along with Wilson. Boston University's Alexx Privitera (Old Tappan, N.J.) also represented the blueliners on the team. Providence College's Ross

Among the other individuals who will be honored at Thursday's banquet will be Boston University senior captain Chris Connolly (Duluth, Minn.) as the Gladiator Hockey Best Defensive Forward and the Len Ceglarski Sportsmanship Award winner. Connolly played in 26 games for the Terriers, recording 32 points (6g,26a) in league play to go along with a +13 plus/minus rating and only six penalty minutes. Connolly finished the season first in assists and tied for fourth in points scored among conference skaters.

Senior forward Matt Ferreira (Brampton, Ont.) of UMass-Lowell will be honored as the third men's recipient of Turfer Athletic Award, which is presented annually to an individual, coach or team who best represents the core values of Turfer Athletics; tenacity, commitment and innovation.
