Mercyhurst club hockey players earn honors

For the first time in the history of Mercyhurst College club hockey, a member of the Laker team has earned a spot on the American Collegiate Hockey Association Division I All-American team.

Sophomore forward Mickey Girardi, Easton, Conn., was one of six players named the ACHA All-American Second Team. Mercyhurst is the smallest by far of the colleges represented, which include University of Illinois, Pennsylvania State University, and the University of Delaware.

Also of note, two Mercyhurst players were given honorable mention: senior forward Rob Garber, Pittsburgh, Pa., and senior forward Lee Penascino, Pittsburgh, Pa.

Bringing home the college’s first spot on the ACHA Division I All-Rookie team was freshman forward Ryan O’Connor, West Hartford, Conn.

The ACHA is an organization of college/university-affiliated club hockey programs and has as its mission the support of the growth of two-year and four-year collegiate hockey programs nationwide while also emphasizing academic performance. The organization oversees eligibility criteria, sets standards of play and provides opportunities for national competition.
