D Andy Welinski, Senior - Minnesota Duluth
D Paul LaDue, Junior - North Dakota
F Danton Heinen, Sophomore - Denver
Heinen and Welinski were named to the first team while LaDue was named to the second team.
The only conference with more players (3) named to the first team is the ECAC.
This is an honor very well-deserved by Heinen as he came off one of the best freshman campaigns in the country in 2014-2015. He finished the year with 16 goals and 31 assists for 45 points in 40 games. 26 of those points came in NCHC play, which led all freshmen.
Heinen will look to follow up that performance with an even better 2015-2016 campaign. If he can somehow improve upon his freshman season, the Hobey Baker Award committee will have no choice but to at least notice.
