SCSU's Drew LeBlanc was named WCHA Player of the Year

MADISON, Wis. St. Cloud State University forward Drew LeBlanc, a driving force behind the Huskies' success in earning a share of the program's first-ever conference regular season championship and MacNaughton Cup, has been honored as both the WCHA Player of the Year and the WCHA Outstanding Student-Athlete of the Year to highlight the league's individual men's awards for 2012-13 as announced by the conference today (March 14).

A senior from Hermantown, Minn., LeBlanc becomes the first league player to earn both of these prestigious awards. He is also a member of the All-WCHA First Team. The offensive catalyst behind the Huskies' drive to first place in the 2012-13 WCHA regular season standings, LeBlanc led the league with 25 assists and also had 10 goals for 35 points in conference play while charting 10 multiple-point games in WCHA action. Overall, he leads all Division 1 players this winter with 34 assists and ranks fourth in the nation with 46 points scored. A four- time recipient of the WCHA Scholar-Athlete Award and a four-time All-WCHA Academic Team honoree, LeBlanc has served as a team captain for the past two seasons at SCSU. He has helped the Huskies post a league-leading 3.36 goals per game in conference action and overall, SCSU ranks fourth in the nation with 119 goals scored. The Huskies enter the WCHA playoffs ranked eighth in the latest Division 1 national polls and own a 21-14-1 overall and 18-9-1 league record. A math education major, LeBlanc is currently completing his student teaching at nearby St. Cloud Apollo High School. He carries a cumulative grade-point average of 3.64, was a CoSIDA Academic All-District honoree in both 2010 and 2011, and has participated in numerous community service activities during his collegiate years, including programs such as Skate With the Huskies and Husky Haulers, helping first-year students move into their dormitories. Over his four-year St. Cloud State career, LeBlanc owns the program record for games played at 165, ranks sixth in career points with 143 and is third with 102 assists.

The WCHA Outstanding Student-Athlete of the Year Award is determined from nominations made by the member institutions and each institution then has one final vote. The criteria is as follows: 1) must be a senior student-athlete, i.e. one who is finishing his competition as an eligible player in the WCHA; 2) consistently displays outstanding sportsmanship on and off the ice; 3) is a good student making satisfactory progress toward a degree; and 4) is a good hockey player who has performed consistently as a regular member of the team.

The league's five other major individual awards for 2012-13 went to St. Cloud State University defenseman Nick Jensen as WCHA Defensive Player of the Year, Minnesota State University goaltender Stephon Williams as WCHA Rookie of the Year, University of Nebraska Omaha forward Ryan Walters as WCHA Scoring Champion, Williams as WCHA Goaltending Champion, and Minnesota State University first-year mentor Mike Hastings as WCHA Coach of the Year.

The league's 12 head coaches voted St. Cloud State defenseman Nick Jensen as the WCHA Defensive Player of the Year. A junior from Rogers, Minn., and an All-WCHA First Team choice, Jensen has been a leader on the Huskies' blueline throughout the 2012-13 campaign. In WCHA play this winter, he has scored four goals and added 19 assists along with a substantial +15 rating on the plus/minus. A leader in minutes played on defense for the Huskies, Jensen consistently faces the opposition's top lines and has helped SCSU's defense limit league opponents to just 2.36 goals per game. Among WCHA defenders, Jensen led the league with 19 assists and was second with 23 points. He has also posted 27 blocked shots in league play this season. In overall games played, Jensen ranks eighth among Division 1 defensemen with 28 points and second with 24 assists this season. He is +17 on the plus/minus for all games and has 36 blocked shots A two-time WCHA Scholar-Athlete and All-WCHA Academic Team selection, Jensen was named to the All-WCHA Second Team in 2011-12. An ironman for the Huskies, Jensen has started in 113 consecutive games and has notched 15 goals and 68 assists during his first three seasons in St. Cloud.

Honored by voters as the WCHA Rookie of the Year for 2012-13 is Minnesota State freshman goaltender Stephon Williams, who also earned All-WCHA First Team and All-WCHA Rookie Team accolades and was the WCHA Goaltending Champion. From Fairbanks, Alaska, Williams, stands 19-9-2 overall (tied for 11th in the country in winning percentage at .667), with a 1.83 goals-against average (sixth in the country) and a .929 save percentage (14 in the country). The two-time WCHA Rookie of the Week finished the WCHA regular season leading the league in goals-against average (1.93), ranking second in save percentage (.927) and third in wins (15). Williams also has four shutouts this season, which stands tied for third on MSU's single-season list, and he has started the last 27 games in a row for the Mavericks and has started 29 of MSU's 36 games in 2012-13.

The WCHA Scoring Champion for 2012-13 is University of Nebraska Omaha forward Ryan Walters, who also earned All-WCHA First Team accolades while having one of the finest seasons in UNO history. A junior from Rosemount, Minn., Walters topped all league skaters with 40 points in 28 conference games, scoring 16 goals and adding 24 assists while also averaging a league-best 1.43 points per game. He had 50 points overall during the regular season, a total that ties for third best in school history, and he is just the third Maverick to score 50 or more points in a season. He ranks second in the NCAA in overall points (21-29=50) and has scored points in 26 of the last 29 games (21-26=47). Walters was named the Hockey Commissioners' Association national player of the month for November, posting six goals and nine assists for 15 points and a +8 rating in seven games to help the Mavericks to a perfect 7-0-0 record. During that stretch, he scored goals in five straight games. Walters' 21 goals are tied fifth best in UNO history, he is just two points from becoming the 13th Maverick to score 100 career points, and he has played in 111 consecutive games.

The WCHA Coach of the Year for 2012-13 is Mike Hastings of Minnesota State University. In his first year as head coach of the Mavericks, Hastings has guided MSU to its first top-half league finish since 2007-08 with a 16-11-1 mark (22-11-3 overall), with his club in contention for the regular season title heading into the final weekend. The Mavericks, who achieved an all-time program best national ranking of No. 7 in the country on Feb. 25, had a seven-game unbeaten streak from Nov. 23-Dec. 14 and during the course of the season the Mavericks have claimed wins over No. 2-ranked Minnesota, No. 4 North Dakota and No. 15 Wisconsin. Minnesota State is positioned to make its second-ever NCAA postseason tournament appearance and under Hastings' guidance, the Mavericks claimed an all-time program-best 16 wins in WCHA games.
