NCAA Men’s Hockey All-Names Team

By: Dan Shulman

There are a lot of great players in college hockey with plenty of talent to go around. But one detail about college hockey that tends to be overlooked are the names.

The following is a list of the best names in all of college hockey. As a precursor, I realize this is all fluff but after half a season of covering college hockey, it’s okay to have a little fun once in a while.

So let’s go by conference shall we…

Atlantic Hockey

Johno May – forward, American International College

Felix Chamberland – forward, Canisius

Tommaso Bucci – forward, Mercyhurst

Nieves is pretty scary on the ice.
