St. Norbert players lead All-USCHO D-III teams

NCAA D-III champions St. Norbert placed one player each on the first, second, and third All-USCHO teams, while Hamline and Fredonia each placed two players on the three teams.

Leading the way on the first team were top scorers Josh Harris of Castleton, Shawn Skelly of Adrian, and Jordon Oye of Fredonia, who finished 1, 4, and 11 in the country in scoring, respectively. On defense are Kyle Shearer-Hardy of Bowdoin, who racked up 38 points on the year (tied for 16), and Chris Berenguer of Hamline, who scored 32 points, (tied with multiple players at 43). Rounding out the first team is USCHO Player of the Year B.J. O’Brien, who led the country in goaltending with a .930 saves percentage and 1.65 goals against average and stopped 39 in the Frozen Four semifinal against defending champs Norwich.

Perhaps the most contested position on the three squads was the final forward position, where the country’s third leading scorer, sophomore Dakota Dubetz of Marian, edged Eric Miller of Adrian for the final slot of forwards.
