Four Student-Athletes Named to NCHC All-Conference Teams

March 7, 2018

DENVER -

The University of Denver Pioneers had two (2) student-athletes named to the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) First-Team All-Conference and two (2) student-athletes named to the Second-Team All-Conference, the NCHC announced on Wednesday.

Henrik Borgström and Tanner Jaillet were selected for First-Team All-Conference, while Dylan Gambrell and Troy Terry were selected for Second-Team All-Conference. Denver’s four (4) players named to First-Team and Second-Team All-Conference marked more than any other school.

In his sophomore season, Borgström was the only unanimous selection for First-Team All-Conference after winning the NCHC regular-season scoring race with 33 points (14-19-33) and averaging 1.38 points per game to pace the league. The Florida Panthers prospect recorded three (3) or more points five (5) conference games, tied for the most in the NCHC. Borgström finished tied for third in the NCAA regular-season scoring race with 44 points (19-25-44) and his 18 power-play points tied him for 7th in NCAA regular-season scoring. Last season, Borgström was named NCHC Rookie of the Year and was a member of the NCHC All-Rookie team as well as the Second-Team All-Conference. The 2017 All-American was named a nominee for the 2018 Hobey Baker Award. He has had back-to-back 40+ point seasons.


 

 

Jaillet finished the NCHC regular season with a league-leading 1.91 goals-against average, .928 save percentage, which ranked second in the conference, and four (4) shutouts. The senior from Red Deer, Alberta finished the NCAA regular season with a .926 save percentage, 1.93 goals against average and five (5) shutouts through 32 games. This marks the second-consecutive First-Team All-Conference honor for Jaillet. The 2017 Mike Richter Award winner enters the postseason with 128 career games played, a school record, and 77 career wins, five (5) shy of tying the record for the winningest goalie in school history.

In his junior season, Gambrell finished third in NCHC regular-season scoring with 30 points (9-21-30) and led the league with 21 assists. The Bonney Lake, Wash. native and San Jose Sharks prospect finished the 34-game NCAA regular season with 41 points (12-29-41) and a +17 plus/minus rating. This marks the second-consecutive Second-Team All-Conference honor for Gambrell. He was named to the NCHC All-Rookie team during his freshman season. The 2018 Hobey Baker Award nominee has recorded three-consecutive 40+ point seasons.

Terry posted 25 points (6-19-25) in the NCHC regular season. The junior and Anaheim Ducks prospect had 19 assists in conference play, tying for third with Borgström, and the fifth-highest points per game average in NCHC games at 1.14. Additionally, Terry led the NCHC with 17 third-period points in conference action. The Highlands Ranch, Colo. native finished the NCAA regular season with 37 points (11-26-37), 17 power-play points and a +14 plus/minus rating. Terry was one of four (4) student-athletes selected to play for the United States men’s hockey team at the 2018 Winter Olympics and was named a nominee for the 2018 Hobey Baker Award. Terry was an NCHC Honorable Mention last season.

Voting was conducted by the eight head coaches at each institution. Coaches voted for six (6) forwards, four (4) defensemen and two (2) goaltenders, awarding first-place votes for six (6) players (three (3) forwards, two (2) defensemen and one (1) goaltender) and second-place votes for the other six (6) selections. Three (3) points were awarded for a first-place vote while one (1) point was awarded for a second-place vote. Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players. 

The NCHC will announce its individual award finalists on Thursday. Individual award winners will be announced at the NCHC Awards Celebration in Saint Paul, Minn. on Thursday, March 15.
