In advance of Thursday's conference Media Day, the NCHC announced this year's preseason All-Conference team, as voted on by the media.
Here is this year's preseason all-conference team:
NCHC Preseason All-Conference Team
F - Austin Czarnik, Miami, Sr. – 23 votes
F – Jonny Brodzinski, St. Cloud State, Jr. – 19 votes
F – Riley Barber, Miami, Jr. – 12 votes
D – Joey LaLeggia, Denver, Sr. – 19 votes
D – Jaccob Slavin, Colorado College, So. – 13 votes
G – Zane McIntyre, North Dakota, Jr. – 25 votes (unanimous)
The vote pretty much matched my submitted ballot, with the exception of Jaccob Slavin over Jordan Schmaltz, and I can't really argue that one.
The NCHC preseason media poll will be announced on Thursday.
