Canisius’ David Kostuch was named Rookie of the Year. Kostuch led the Golden Griffins with 21 goals and tallied 32 points overall.

Bentley coach Ryan Soderquist was named Coach of the Year, Soderquist guided the Falcons to a fourth-place finish and a berth in the conference playoff semifinals. Bentley had its most successful season (17-15-2) in school history.
