WAKEFIELD, Mass. -- Recent graduate Steven Shamanski (Carberry, Manitoba) and junior forward Brooks Behling (Pittsburgh, Pa.) were named to the 2014 Hockey East All-Academic Team, it was announced by the conference on Friday afternoon (June 27). It marks the fourth time Shamanski has been named to the Hockey East All-Academic team, while Behling earned the honor for a second consecutive season.
Shamanski was also named a Hockey East Distinguished Scholar for achieving at least a 3.0 grade point average in each semester of his Friar career.
All told, Hockey East saw a league-record 109 student-athletes named to the league’s 2014 All-Academic Team. To be named to the All-Academic Team, a student-athlete must achieve a grade point average of 3.0 or better in each of the two academic periods during which he was actively competing.
This past season, Shamanski and Behling helped the Friars (22-11-6, 11-7-2 HEA) return to the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 2001 and to their first NCAA Tournament win since 1991, a 4-0 first round blanking of Quinnipiac (March 28). The Friars also made a third-consecutive Hockey East Semifinal appearance for the first time in program history.
