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 2009-10 season. The nation's top 24 college hockey players were announced tonight at the NCAA Men's Division I Frozen Four in Detroit, MI. Leading the way was the University of Denver, with three West First Team selections, and the University of New Hampshire, with one East First Team choice and two so honored on the Second Team. Noteworthy among the selections:

Only one player had been so honored before. Junior defenseman Erik Gustafsson of Northern Michigan University repeated on the West Second Team.

There are 14 players from the United States eight from Canada, and two from Sweden.

The honorees are fairly youthful. Only nine of the 24 selections are seniors. Of the rest, nine are juniors and six are sophomores.

The honorees hail from ten different states and four Canadian provinces, as well as Sweden (two players for the second year in a row.)

Seventeen players participated in the NCAA Tournament. Three of them advanced to the "Frozen Four," all from the West.

The honorees include all ten finalists for the 2010 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.
