College Hockey:
Atkinson, Kapalka, Biega named USCHO’s Three Stars for March 9


Michael Biega, Harvard: It was a close vote between the Crimson senior and North Dakota’s Matt Frattin, who put up seven points in a series against Michigan Tech. But given that Harvard was playing to keep its season season going and that Biega’s two goals both ended up being winners against Clarkson, he got the nod. :: Michael Biega’s player page

Kevin Kapalka, Lake Superior State: The Lakers goaltender stopped 76 of the 78 shots he faced in a first-round playoff series sweep of Ohio State. He shut out the Buckeyes for the first five periods of the series. :: Kevin Kapalka’s player page

Cam Atkinson, Boston College: In a series that determined the Hockey East regular season champion, the Eagles junior came up big. He scored twice on Friday to pull the Eagles ahead of New Hampshire in the standings, then added a goal and an assist in Saturday’s clincher. :: Cam Atkinson’s player page

    wow…………ik you gave frattin a picture and a giant article but seriously this must be rigged or sumthin…..i nominate frattin every week and hes was most deserving last week with 7 POINTS!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

      don’t get me wrong-great player,but he padded his stats against a team that is 4-28-4, in a meaningless game. Atkinson’s points meant far more to his team in clinching the regular season trophy for first place against UNH.
      One thing we can both agree on-I hope BC and UND get to renew their rivalry and play against each other in the frozen four. I’m looking forward to it.

        I agree. Frattin put up big numbers but Atkinson’s 4 points were “more important”. Maybe if Fratts throws up a 10 spot this weekend he will get the nod.

        Nice faux hawk Cam.

          I see UND gets to play Michigan Tech again this weekend; this time at home.

          Yikes! A good opportunity to add to his Div. 1 leading goal total. He’s had a breakout year.

          • GeauxSioux

            They “get” to play them due to their performance this year. Don’t be mad!

  • Righty

    Garbage. Im starting to think how you do on the ice doesn’t matter here. I think the deciding vote is what team you play for on this pro-east website.

    stop it…BC = GOD…GOD RULES

    J, I nominated Frattin when he had the 2 game winners and the at the end of 10 and start of 11, then when he single handedly pulled the team up on friday against SCSU. and I will nominate him again after tonights game. Currently he is averaging just under 4 points a game against tech.
