ECAC Announces All-Rookie Team

— The voting is in for the ECAC All-Rookie Team. The league’s head coaches nominated no fewer than 25 players for consideration for the team; voting, conducted to determine the top six qualifiers, identified six players above the pack — four forwards, one defenseman and one goaltender.

The All-Rookie Team is as follows:

Dominque Auger Princeton D 22 GP, 3-12--15
Ryan Campbell Union F 20 GP, 7- 5--12
Peter Gardiner Rensselaer F 22 GP, 6-13--19
Jeff Hamilton Yale F 22 GP, 7-11--18
Ryan Moynihan Cornell F 22 GP, 4-13--17
J.R. Prestifilippo Harvard G .902 SV%, 2.90 GAA

Included among the All-Rookie Team is the ECAC Rookie of the Year, who will be named and honored at the ECAC Awards Banquet on Thursday, March 13, at the Holiday Inn in Lake Placid.

The remaining ECAC awards, including the league’s all-star teams and the Player, Rookie, Goalie and Coach of the Year, will also be announced at the banquet.
