LAKE PLACID, N.Y. — Senior forward Zach Graham and freshman forward Shaquille Merasty of Adrian College were selected to the 2013 CCM Division II/III Men's Hockey All-American Team. Midwest Collegiate Hockey Association two-time Player of the Year Graham is the only repeat selection from 2012 and was chosen as a first-team selection, while Merasty made the second-team in his first year of eligibility.

NCAA semifinalists Oswego State, Norwich, and UW-Eau Claire lead the way with three selections each, as does Hobart College and St. Norbert College. The fourth NCAA semifinalist, Utica College, has one honoree.

Of the 30 All-Americans, 18 are from the United States, 11 are from Canada, and one is from Sweden. The two leading sources are Ontario (6) and Massachusetts (5).
