Goaltender: Atte Tolvanen, Sr., NMU

Defensemen: Justin Baudry, Sr., BSU; Alec Rauhauser, Jr., BGSU

All-WCHA Third Team

Defensemen: Connor Mackey, So., MSU; Ian Scheid, Jr., MSU
Goaltender: Ryan Bednard, Jr., BGSU


Congrats to Kruse, Rauhauser, and Bednard for all making their respective All-WCHA squads. I think they drastically misplaced the goalies (Bedzy has an argument for first, but I think McKay should have gotten it) and they gave Tolvanen, a statistically inferior netminder for the current season, the lifetime achievement award for being only solid this year. Max Johnson being completely left off all three teams (9 forward spots), while being 4th in the conference in goals and tied for 5th in points, is also extremely insulting.

I hope these slights light a fire under the boys and really gets them going this weekend.

The WCHA awards are based off of conference games and stats only......Johnson was way down the list in league stats.

Many of our forwards did their damage in the early Non-Conference season.

Tolvanen had better WCHA stats than Bednard and has pretty much single handily beaten us at least 4 times over his career that I can remember.

He is our biggest roadblock to wining this weekend, not their team.
Heck he just made 60 stops at Tech two weeks ago in a game NMU was completely outplayed in, yet won. That was the night we choked against UAH.......so he is basically the reason why these games are at NMU and not in BG. He's the real deal and probably the best goalie in the league.
