USCHO awards: Five schools land two players on 2012-13 All-USCHO teams

In 2012, Boston College had four players on the All-USCHO teams. A year later, things were much more spread out.

Five teams had two players selected for the 2012-13 All-USCHO teams, with no repeat honorees from last season.

Frozen Four semifinalists Massachusetts-Lowell and St. Cloud State were among those teams, along with Boston College, North Dakota and St. Lawrence.

The 2012-13 All-USCHO first team is:

Goaltender Eric Hartzell, a senior from Quinnipiac
Defenseman Chad Ruhwedel, a junior from Massachusetts-Lowell
Defenseman Jacob Trouba, a freshman from Michigan
Forward Kyle Flanagan, a senior from St. Lawrence
Forward Johnny Gaudreau, a sophomore from Boston College
Forward Danny Kristo, a senior from North Dakota

The 2012-13 All-USCHO second team is:

Goaltender Connor Hellebuyck, a freshman from Massachusetts-Lowell
Defenseman Nick Bailen, a senior from Rensselaer
Defenseman Nick Jensen, a junior from St. Cloud State
Forward Greg Carey, a junior from St. Lawrence
Forward Drew LeBlanc, a senior from St. Cloud State
Forward Steven Whitney, a senior from Boston College

The 2012-13 All-USCHO third team is:

Goaltender Brady Hjelle, a senior from Ohio State
Defenseman Shayne Gostisbehere, a sophomore from Union
Defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk, a sophomore from New Hampshire
Forward Corban Knight, a senior from North Dakota
Forward Anders Lee, a junior from Notre Dame
Forward Andrew Miller, a senior from Yale

ECAC Hockey led the way with six players among the 18 selected, with five of the 12 league teams represented.

Hockey East had five players picked, while four came from the WCHA and three from the CCHA.

The All-USCHO teams were chosen by U.S. College Hockey Online’s Division I men’s conference columnists after the Frozen Four. Individual awards for the rookie, coach and player of the year will be unveiled later this week.

    I would have thought that Bjugstad might have made the 2nd or 3rd team.

      Why…he barely made the third All WCHA team.

    • ExiledGopher

      Haula should have made it before Bjugstad. Nick just seemed checked out for most of the year.

      I thought Budish had a better year than Bjugstad.

    In other news, Atlantic Hockey still gets no respect.

    And the nation’s leading scorer is not worthy of being honored…really? Really? Since you don’t seem to know who he is, his name is Rylan Schwartz, he played at Colorado College. He scored 20 goals and added 33 assists. The LEADING scorer in the country!!!! Your all-USCHO are discredited by omitting Schwartz!!!

      This is just downright embarrassing. The kid single handedly brought CC to the WCHA championship game with 8 points 6 playoff games. He was an absolute work horse. Played in every possible situation. Had 53 points in 41 games for a team that was mediocre at best (sub .500). To top it all off he did all this with the utmost determination and passion while grieving his sister’s passing. Isn’t that the definition of the Hobey? The definition of an All-American? The definition of what makes a college hockey player great?

      Not to mention Ryan Walters also got no love. The top two in the nation did not make the top 3 teams. Ouch.

      Schwartz was a great two-way player all year. Penalty kill, power play. Huge minutes. All through the post-season he drew the opponents’ best defenders as CC was the visiting team in all six of those games. Still the best skater on the ice in each of those games, and had the numbers each night to back this up. LeBlanc, a most deserving player, was scoreless in the Final 5 and NCAA tournaments (4 games). It seems the USCHO “all-teams,” determined after the final game, could do a better job of sorting this all out, and recognize players who missed out because of earlier voting for other honors.
