SBN College Hockey's NCHC All-League Awards

St. Cloud's Kevin Gravel and Miami's Austin Czarnik both crack the second team - Matt Christians

The league champion Huskies put four players the on SBN College Hockey's All-League team

With the NCHC season regular season, it's time to cast votes for individual and all-league honors. We don't get an official vote in the NCHC post-season awards, but we'll post our own ballot anyway, since it makes for a good topic of discussion.

Here's a look at the best in the NCHC this season:

First Team

F-Jonny Brodzinski, St. Cloud

F-Josh Archibald, Nebraska-Omaha

F-Chase Balisy, Western Michigan

D-Dillon Simpson, North Dakota

D-Andrew Prochno, St. Cloud

G-Sam Brittain, Denver

No real surprises here. Prochno is the only one that wasn't necessarily a statistical leader, but there was no doubt he was SCSU's top defenseman and he had a great year.

Second Team

F-Nic Dowd, St. Cloud

F-Rocco Grimaldi, North Dakota

F-Austin Czarnik, Miami

D-Andy Welinski, Minnesota-Duluth

D-Kevin Gravel, St. Cloud

G-Zane Gothberg, North Dakota

The second team is a little more based on overall play rather than just points scored. These guys were all extremely effective players, even if they weren't at the top of the scoring charts.

All-Rookie

F-Trevor Moore, Denver

F-Jake Guentzel, Nebraska-Omaha

F-Kyle Osterberg, Minnesota-Duluth

D-Paul LaDue, North Dakota

D-Jaccob Slavin, Colorado College

G-No rookie played 33% of his team's minutes in conference play.

This group was pretty clear above the rest of the league rookies. An argument could be made for Slavin and Guentzel on the All-League teams. LaDue, Osterberg, and Moore were all extremely impressive too.

Individual Awards

Player of the Year- Josh Archibald, Nebraska-Omaha

Coach of the Year- Bob Motzko, St. Cloud

Rookie of the Year- Jaccob Slavin, Colorado College

Archibald and Slavin were both incredible this year. Slavin may have been a snub from the all-league teams. Mtozko deserves a lot of credit for taking a team that lost a Hobey Baker winner, a defenseman of the year, and a great senior scorer, and repeating as league champion.
