NU Goalie Thiessen Hockey East POY, Among Hobey Baker Finalists

Northeastern’s junior goaltender, Brad Thiessen, key to the school’s turnaround, was named Hockey East’s Player of the Year. He lead the conference with a .932 save percentage and 2.00 goals against average while playing every minute of the season in goal for the Huskies. Northeastern reached the Garden Semis for the first time since 1994 bolstered by his play in net. His coach, Greg Cronin, won the well deserved Coach of the Year award as the Huskies really came out of nowhere to finish second in the league standings, a single point behind BU.

The Terriers boast the Rookie of the Year in goalie Kieran Millan, who was among four BU players to win all conference honors, the league high. Senior defensemen Matt Gilroy was the only holdover from last year’s selections.
