National Freshman of the Year Connor Armour Headlines Bulldogs on USCHO All-Rookie Team

USCHO release

MINNEAPOLIS--The Adrian College men's hockey team was well represented comprising 50 percent of the 2016 U.S. College Hockey Online (USCHO.com) All-Rookie Team that was announced on Wednesday.

Center Connor Armour (Bowmanville, Ontario / Cobourg Cougars, OJHL) headlines the list as the USCHO.com Division III Men's Rookie of the Year, becoming the second Bulldog in as many seasons to gain the honor. Kyle Brothers was named last season.

Joining Armour on the organization's all-rookie team are goaltender Kevin Entmaa (Milton, Ontario / Caledonia Corvairs, GOJHL) and defenseman Cory Dunn (Trenton, Mich. / Austin Bruins, NAHL).

Armour receives his second freshman of the year moniker as the Northern Collegiate Hockey Association recognized him last month. The All-NCHA pick topped NCAA Division III freshmen with 30 assists and 38 points--figures that also rank first and second overall, respectively, in the NCHA. He also finished in a ninth-place tie among all D-III point-getters.

During his 28-game campaign, he posted 11 multi-point performances. He recorded at least one point in 18 of his games and never went more than a two-game stretch without appearing on the score sheet.

Armour twice netted a career-high four points in a game, including four assists at Aurora on Jan. 9 and two goals, two assists against Lawrence at home on Jan. 29.

Dunn last month was tabbed to the CCM Division III All-America Second Team by the American Hockey Coaches Association. That adds to a slew of accolades that included All-NCHA, conference all-freshman, NCHA Harris Cup All-Tournament Team, and three-time D3hockey.com National Team of the Week.

He was the nation's most prolific scorer on the blueline with 6 goals, 25 assists and 31 total points. He led the NCHA and Division III with 25 assists and 31 points from the point--totals that also were in the top-10 at the conference and national levels for rookie marks. In the NCHA, Dunn was tied for 11th in overall scoring.

Entmaa was the last unbeaten goalie at any NCAA men's level and became the first Bulldog to go undefeated, untied during the regular season (minimum of 10 decisions). He finished 14-1 to lead the nation with a .933 winning percentage. The All-NCHA Freshman team member compiled a 2.12 goals-against average and .926 save percentage for fifth and second, respectively, in the conference.
