The Hockey Humanitarian Award Foundation announced on Thursday the 15 nominees for the 2017 Hockey Humanitarian Award.
The Foundation and its long-time lead sponsor BNY Mellon Wealth Management present the award annually to college hockey’s finest citizen — a student-athlete who makes significant contributions not only to his or her team, but also to the community-at-large through leadership in volunteerism.
The following are this year’s nominees:
|Russell Armbruster||Jr.||Lebanon Valley|
|Anders Bjork||Jr.||Notre Dame|
|Alexis Crossley||Sr.||Boston University|
|Collin Delia *||Jr.||Merrimack|
|Danny Divis||Sr.||St. Michael's|
|David Goodwin||Sr.||Penn State|
|Justin McKenzie||Sr.||St. Michael's|
|Sarah Nielsen||Sr.||Penn State|
|Lauren Spring||Jr.||Ohio State|
* Repeat nominee
NOTE: Divis and McKenzie submitted as St. Michael’s co-nominees
Finalists will be announced in February. The 2017 recipient will be recognized in a ceremony on Friday, April 7, as part of Frozen Four weekend in Chicago.
Air Force’s Chris Dylewski was the 2016 recipient.
