Colorado College sophomore Nick Halloran was one of 24 players named to the CCM/AHCA Hockey Men’s Division I All-American Teams for the 2017-18 season. He earned a spot on the second team in the West.

Halloran (19 goals, 26 assists in 37 total games) is one of six players from the National Collegiate Hockey Conference to be honored. The Draper, Utah, native is part of a strong sophomore class – 11 were named All-Americans, more than any other group.

This marks the 61st time Colorado College has placed a player on the All-American team. Halloran is the first since forward Jaden Schwartz earned first-team honors in 2011-12.

Denver tied for the most among schools with three honorees – forward Henrik Borgstrom, who tied Halloran for the most regular-season points in the NCHC this season, and forward Troy Terry on the first team, and goaltender Tanner Jaillet on the second. None of the three will return to the Pioneers next season.

The team is chosen by members of the American Hockey Coaches Association.

Air Force captain Abood wins Derek Hines Award

Air Force senior defenseman Dylan Abood won the 2018 Derek Hines Unsung Hero Award. He is the second Falcon to win the award, after Mike Phillipich in 2009.

The award, named for former Army hockey captain Hines who was killed in the line of duty in 2005, is given to a player “who displays exemplary sports­manship, is supremely competitive, intelligent and extraordinarily conditioned with an unmatched work ethic. The contributions of this individual, on and off the ice, cannot be measured by statistics alone.”

Abood has a 3.85 grade-point average in electrical engineering and has logged many volunteer hours with local charities. The two-time Air Force captain recorded 27 career points in 122 career games and finished his college career with a plus-35 plus-minus.

Abood was a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award, given to the most outstanding senior student-athlete in Division I men’s hockey.
