Three hockey players earn All-America accolades

In March, Tori Charron, Marie-Philip Guay, and Travis Janke were named American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) CCM All-Americans.

Charron, a senior from Tecumseh, Ont., earned First Team, East Region All-America honors for the second straight year after winning back-to-back Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) East Player of the Year Awards. This past season the five-foot, six-inch-tall forward netted 29 goals and added 17 assists for a total of 46 points. She also led the country in power-play goals and game-winning goals. A transfer student from Elmira College, Charron’s 104 total career goals in 108 games ranks third on the all-time NCAA Division III goals scored list.

Senior defenseman Marie-Philip Guay earned Second Team, East Region All-America honors for the first time in her career after being named to the ECAC-East All-Conference First Team. The Cadets blue-liner from Longueuil, Que., set new career highs with 6 goals and 10 assists for 16 points.

The pair, also named to the New England Hockey Writers Assoc. (NEHWA) Division II-III All-Star Team, helped the Cadets compile a 26-3-0 record, earning its fourth NCAA Division III Frozen Four appearance since 2010. Their selections bring the NU Women’s Hockey program’s total All-Americans to 10, including 8 in the last three seasons.

Travis Janke capped a stellar four-year career by being named to the AHCA First Team, East Region All-America squad. The senior forward helped lead the Cadets to a 20-7-3 season and their 16th straight ECAC-East regular season title. His career-high 16 goals coupled with 22 assists earned him ECAC-East First Team honors for the second consecutive season.

Along the way, the Swift Current, Sask., native hit two major milestones, notching his 50th career goal and his 100th career assist, and finished his tenure in the maroon and gold as Mr. Ironman, playing in all 119 Norwich games of the last four seasons. His career total 54 goals and 100 assists places him twelfth on Norwich’s all-time total points list. Janke, who was also named to the ECAC-East All-Tournament team and the NEHWA Division II-III All-Star team, is the 42nd All-America selection in the 104-year history of Norwich men’s hockey.
