BUFFALO, N.Y. - The American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) announced the Men’s CCM/AHCA Division I All-Americans on Friday, and four ECAC Hockey players have been honored.
Harvard’s Adam Fox (Jr. / Jericho, N.Y.), Princeton’s Ryan Kuffner (Sr. / Ottawa, Ont.), and Clarkson’s Nico Sturm (Jr. / Augsburg, Germany) were all named to the First-Team, while Quinnipiac’s Andrew Shortridge (Jr. / Anchorage, Alaska) was named the Second-Team Goaltender.
All four players were also placed on the ECAC Hockey First Team All-League team in March after their strong performances in the regular-season. Fox, Sturm, and Shortridge also lead their teams to NCAA Tournament appearances two weeks ago.
2019 will mark the eighth consecutive season that ECAC Hockey has placed at least three players on the First-Team All-America list. Fox has been one of those names for the past three seasons, as the junior has now earned All-American status in each of his first three years for the Crimson.
Of the four players on the list, three have already signed professional contracts, and are playing hockey at the next level. Shortridge signed with the San Jose Barracuda (AHL), while Kuffner played 10 games to close out the season with the Detroit Red Wings (NHL), and Sturm played in the final two games of the year for the Minnesota Wild (NHL).
