Men's Hockey Receives NCHA Honors
Posted: Thursday, February 23, 2006
EAU CLAIRE - The Northern Collegiate Hockey Association (NCHA) handed out accolades today with one UW-Eau Claire men's hockey player being elected to an honorable mention and four to the all-academic team.
Chip Dunleavy (Sr.-Littleton, CO/Columbine) earned his first All-NCHA Honorable Mention with a quality season for the Blugolds. Dunleavy had eight points in NCHA play with seven goals and one assist, which was the most for Eau Claire in NCHA play. The seven goals are tied for eighth in the NCHA. He also has six NCHA power-plays, which stands among the best. On the entire year he tallied 13 goals and four assists for a team-leading 17 points. His 13 scores were the most for the Blugolds, as well. He shot in nine power-play strikes throughout the entire, another team best.
To become a member of the NCHA All-Academic Team a player must have a cumulative 3.00 point grade average, have earned at least 50 semester or 75 quarter hours, and be recommended by his head coach. Elected to the All-NCHA Academic Team were Brooks Lockwood (Jr.-Hudson), Chris Nelson (Sr.-Madison/Memorial), Jeremiah Weber (So.-Hayward) and Sean Clark (Sr.-Royal Oak, MI/Brother Rice). This is the third selection to this honor for Nelson and the second for Lockwood and Weber. It is Clark's first such recognition.
The team had finished play Saturday after losing its second quarterfinal game against St. Norbert, which eliminated Eau Claire from the playoffs. The team had a 0-12-2 NCHA record and 2-21-4 overall mark.
