MEN’S REEBOK DIVISION I ICE HOCKEY ALL-AMERICANS ANNOUNCED
(Download release in PDF Format)

Twenty different Division I hockey-playing schools can celebrate players honored as Reebok All Americans for the 2008-09 season. The nation's top 24 college hockey players were announced tonight at the NCAA Men's Division I Frozen Four in Washington, DC. Leading the way was Boston University with three selections, including two on the East First Team. The University of Michigan and Notre Dame each had two honorees. Noteworthy among the selections:

Only two players had been so honored before. Senior defenseman Matt Gilroy of Boston University, a First Team choice this year, was named to the East First Team a year ago and to the East Second Team in 2007. Colorado College forward Chad Rau repeated on the West Second Team.

There are 15 players from the United States seven from Canada, and two from Sweden.

The honorees are experienced. Twelve of the 24 selections are seniors and 10 are juniors. There is one sophomore and one freshman.

The honorees hail from eight states and four Canadian provinces. The leading source is Minnesota with four native sons.

Fifteen players participated in the NCAA Tournament. Five of them advanced to the "Frozen Four."

The honorees include all ten finalists for the 2009 Hobey Baker Memorial Award.

The AHCA/Reebok All-American Ice Hockey Teams are sponsored by Reebok, an international leader in hockey equipment, and chosen by members of the American Hockey Coaches Association.
