Monday Stuff

Inside College Hockey released their awards. Their freshman all-american team consists of three former USHLers. Kyle Lawson (Tri-City), Andreas Nodl (Sioux Falls), and Teddy Purcell (Cedar Rapids) were named to the team.

Teddy Purcell was named their Rookie of the Year. Well deserved honor for Mr. Purcell.

How good is Maine forward Teddy Purcell? Let Black Bears centerman Michel Léveillé and forward Josh Soares, no slouches in their own right, explain.

"He's a terrific player," Léveillé told the Boston Globe earlier this month. "He's got great speed, great hands, and sees the ice really well."

"He doesn’t seem like a rookie at all out there,” said Soares, who spent a good chunk of the season on a line with Purcell and Léveillé. “He knows where to go with the puck and he always seems to be in the right place."

They also named their All-American first, second, and third teams. Multiple alumni were named.

Chicago's Drew LeBlanc has committed to St. Cloud State University.
