All-ECAC Team and Harvard's Three Season Stars

Coming up this week, we will have our final Power Rankings of the season headed into the first round of the ECAC playoffs, as well as a preview of the Harvard-Dartmouth series.

But first, we unveil our 2013 WHRB All-ECAC Team.


Greg Carey (STL) - Kyle Flanagan (STL) - Andrew Calof (PRI)
Kenny Agostino (YAL) - Andrew Miller (YAL) - Matt Lorito (BRN)
Wayne Simpson (UNI) - Jeremy Langlois (QUI) - Robbie Bourdon (COL)
Ryan Haggerty (RPI) - Tyler Sikura (DRT) - Daniel Carr (UNI)

The ECAC is embarrassingly rich at center, and as a result we've embarrassingly slotted Andrew Calof and Matt Lorito at wing. Without question, however, they deserve to be on the top two lines of this terrifying group of forwards.


Mat Bodie (UNI) - Mike Dalhuisen (QUI)
Nick Bailen (RPI) - Shayne Gostisbehere (UNI)
George Hughes (STL) - Michael Sdao (PRI)

With apologies to Tommy Fallen, Nick D'Agostino, Zach Davies, Greg Coburn, Danny Biega, and many others.


Eric Hartzell (QUI)
Anthony Borelli (BRN)

There should be no controversy about Hartzell, while Borelli has played Brown into home-ice advantage in the first round from the bottom of the ECAC.

Defending conference champions Union lead our team with four selections, followed by three from St. Lawrence and Quinnipiac, and two each from Yale, Princeton, Brown, and RPI. No players from Harvard, Cornell, or Clarkson made the team.

In light of having selected no Crimson players, we do bring you Harvard's Three Season Stars from the '12-'13 campaign, compounded from our Three Star selections after every game dating back to October.

#3. Kyle Criscuolo (8 total points, with one First Star selection)
An impressive finish for Harvard's best two-way forward, considering the freshman missed ten games mid-year. Fearless in all zones, the spark plug has centered Harvard's best line in the last month.

#2. Jimmy Vesey (11 total points, with two First Star selections)
The freshman announced his arrival with three points in his first official collegiate game, and carried the team in the early months. Absences due to national commitments and injury have broken his rhythm at times, but Vesey remains Harvard's most dangerous forward and is tied for the team lead in goals.

#1. Raphael Girard (20 total points, with five First Star Selections)
No surprises here. Thirteen games of 30 or more saves. Three with over 40. Second in saves in conference. Girard won't get much recognition for turning seven-goal losses into three-goal losses, but the junior is Harvard's best player right now and the only reason the Crimson can dream about an ECAC tournament run.
