Connor Hellebuyck Wins the Mike Richter Award

Matt Dewkett

Hellebuyck is the first ever recipient of the award for college hockey's top goalie.

UMass Lowell goalie Connor Hellebuyck was named the inaugural winner of the Mike Richter Award, given to college hockey's top goalie. Hellebuyck compiled an 18-9-2 record with the River Hawks this season. He led the nation in both goals against average(1.79) and save percentage(.941).

When we took a closer look at the stats of the Richter finalists earlier today, it showed that Hellebuyck was saving about 0.9 goals per night more than the average goalie, which was also best in the nation. He was simply dominant in his two seasons of college hockey, and more than deserving as the first ever recipient of college hockey's top goalie award.

Hellebuyck signed with the Winnipeg Jets last week.
