PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Providence College men's ice hockey junior forward Jon DiSalvatore (South Windsor, Conn.) was named one of 12 finalists for the 50th Walter Brown Award, given annually to top American-born Division I college hockey player in New England. DiSalvatore is one of eight players named from HOCKEY EAST schools.
DiSalvatore is the Friars' leading scorer this season and ranks third in the HOCKEY EAST in overall scoring with 14 goals and a career-high 23 assists for 37 points in 31 games. DiSalvatore has scored four power-play goals and has added two shorthanded scores. He has led PC to a 13-14-4 overall record and a 8-9-1 mark in HOCKEY EAST play.
DiSalvatore joins Boston College sophomores Tony Voce and Ben Eaves, Northeastern's Jim Fahey and Mike Ryan, UNH's Sean Collins, BU's Mike Pandolfo and Maine's Mike Morrison as HOCKEY EAST players chosen as finalists for the Walter Brown Award. Harvard's Peter Capouch, Yale's Dan Lombard, Dartmouth's Mike Maturo and Holy Cross' Pat Rissmiller round out the finalists.
Four Providence College men's ice hockey players have earned the Walter Brown Award in the 50-year history of the award, with the last being Mike Omicioli of West Warwick, R.I., who shared the honor in 1999 with Boston College's Mike Mottau. Current PC Volunteer Coach Rob Gaudreau won the award in 1992 as a senior, Tim Army won the award in 1985 and Ron Wilson was the first Friar to win the award when he was honored in 1975.
The 2002 Walter Brown Award will be presented at the New England Hockey Writers' Dinner on April 10 in Saugus, Mass.
