Hockey awards season starts with All-Ivy Teams….

Dartmouth got the shaft bigtime as the hockey team placed only one person on the all-Ivy squads this year, as voted by the 6 coaches of the Ivy League teams, despite finishing 3rd in the ECAC and tied for 2nd in the Ivy League standings. Trevor Byrne was picked to the 2nd team All-Ivy squad, and sophomore Lee Stempniak garnered an honorable mention.

Hugh Jessiman was a unanimous choice for Ivy League Freshman of the Year.

Cornell was the big winner with 3 players on the first team, another on the second, and a 5th getting an honorable mention. Cornell netminder David LeNeveu also was voted Ivy League Player of the Year.

Dartmouth should fare better in the All-ECAC teams. Look for Byrne and Stempniak to get spots again, with Pete Summerfelt and/or Jessiman possibly joining them. As well, Dartmouth should garner two if not three spots on the ECAC All-Freshman team. Jessiman is a lock and will easily get ECAC Freshman of the Year award as well, while Mike Ouellette and/or Sean Offers should join him on the All-Freshman squad.
