Michigan hockey's Shawn Hunwick and Carl Hagelin collect CCHA awards
Michigan hockey coach Red Berenson said that at last year's CCHA awards banquet, his team, particularly goaltender Shawn Hunwick, felt like guests at Miami University’s party, as the Red Hawks collected award after award.
That wasn't the case Thursday night, however, as the senior collected the Best Goaltender Award at the CCHA Awards Banquet at the Fox Theater in Detroit.
Joining Hunwick on the honors list was fellow senior Carl Hagelin, who won the Best Defensive Forward Award.
Hunwick won the goaltender award based solely on his league-best 1.95 goals-against average. He also had the highest save percentage (.931) in the conference while going 14-6-1 as a starter. Hunwick joins Marty Turco and Steve Shields as Wolverine goalies to have won the award.
Hagelin led Michigan in goals (15), assists (22) and points (37) this season. He was also tops in power-play goals (6), game-winning goals (5) and plus/minus (+14).
Hagelin is the seventh Wolverine to win the award along with Mike Stone (‘94), John Madden (‘97), Jed Ortmeyer (‘03), Dwight Helminen (2004), Eric Nystrom (‘05) and Tim Miller (‘09).
The banquet was part of CCHA Championship weekend. Games get underway Friday night at Joe Louis Arena. The regular-season champion Wolverines play Western Michigan at 8:05 p.m. The Wolverines will play either Notre Dame or Miami on Saturday in either the 7:35 p.m. championship game or the 3:35 p.m. consolation game.
