SB Nation Preseason All-Atlantic Hockey Teams

The Atlantic Hockey Player of the Year race should come down to a battle between Matthew Zay and Cody Wydo.

Mercyhurst was selected first in the Atlantic Hockey Association Preseason Coaches' Poll released last week by the league. There's little doubt the Lakers will be at or very close to the top of the league standings when the season ends, and that's for good reason. Rick Gotkin's team is loaded with talent -- a few of whom are present on SB Nation's Preseason Atlantic Hockey All-Conference teams as selected by Jeff Cox.
