Thoughts

  • Let’s begin with the First Team, and the obvious one. Sergio Perkovic. How does a guy that has 23 goals and nine assists get the nod over a guy like Zach Currier, who did nearly everything for Princeton, or Eric Scott of Yale? Currier got robbed over a guy that was hurt for a portion of the season and wasn’t the same self as he was in his first two years with the Fighting Irish. He was a couple points better than he was last year, but naming him a First Team All-American is pretty lame. Perkovic was on the IL Second Team, and Currier was on the First Team. Scott was an Honorable Mention.
  • Two snubs on the First Team list were Scott Firman of Syracuse and Brendan Hynes for Richmond. They both got bumped to the Second Team in favor of Notre Dame’s Garrett Epple of Notre Dame and Austin Pifani of North Carolina. In the IL list, Pifani was a Third Team selection. Both of them deserve the tremendous nod, especially Firman, who I’ve seen play in person the entire season. I like the Ben Randall selection though, I think he is certainly a First Team nod.
  • On the Second Team, I hate to see Justin Guterding on this list, but there’s four other top quality attackmen at First Team, so hopefully we see him next year. Definitely a top five attackman.
  • Denver’s attackman should be Ethan Walker, an Honorable Mention, over Connor Cannizzaro. Surprisingly, Walker wasn’t even an Honorable Mention on the IL list, while Cannizzaro was a Third Team selection.
  • I really like Jarrod Neumann on the Second Team for Providence. He was a very underrated defenseman that helped the Friars to a very good season in 2017. Sadly, he’s a senior this year.
  • On the Third Team, Michael Sowers of Princeton got robbed too. He was the best freshman out there this season (although some people might say a fellow Ivy Leaguer was better).
  • On the Honorable Mentions, good to see Virginia’s duo of Michael Kraus and Dox Aitken make it. Also thought Binghamton’s Tom Moore and, yes, Jeff Teat of Cornell, should’ve been named Third Team choices. Since I complemented Teat, does that mean the world will combust?
  • I think Brown’s Stephen Hudak should’ve been considered as an Honorable Mention, but he heated up late in the season. He should be a difference maker for the Bears next season.
