Four Men's Hockey Players named to ECAC East All-Academic Team

DANBURY, Conn. – Four Saint Anselm College men's hockey players were named to the Eastern College Athletic Conference East All-Academic Team, the league announced Monday. Seniors Joey Agliato (Hauppauge, N.Y.) and Sean Jenkins (Boston, Mass.) and sophomores Brendon Kerrigan (Boston, Mass.) and Brad Rocheville (Saugus, Mass.) all earned the distinction for the 2014-15 season. 

A total of 109 student-athletes from the league's 10 institutions earned the honor. In order to be eligible for the All-Academic Team, student-athletes must carry a cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher and have completed at least one full year at their current institution.

Agliato, a History major, appeared in 26 games and finished fourth in points scored this season, recording three goals and 10 assists in his senior year. He notched a short-handed goal against Skidmore on Nov. 15, and added game-winners against Southern N.H. and Southern Maine over a 10-day span in early February.

Jenkins, a Finance major and alternate team captain, scored seven goals and led the team with 15 assists and 22 overall points. He recorded four multiple-point games, including a season-high three-point effort at UMass-Boston with a goal and two assists. Through his four-year career, he appeared in 106 games and scored 23 goals and 48 assists.

Kerrigan, also a Finance major, finished fifth on the team this season with 11 points scored on four goals and seven assists. The sophomore scored the game-winner against Saint Michael's on Jan. 30 and dumped in an empty-netter against New England College in a 4-0 shutout of the pilgrims on Dec. 5.

Rocheville, who is majoring in International Relations, appeared in three games and recorded two starts this season. He tallied a save percentage of .812 in his sophomore season and gave up just nine goals on the year.

University of New England placed 17 men's hockey players on this year's ECAC East All-Academic squad, while New England College added 16 honorees this winter.

Saint Anselm compiled an 11-13-3 overall mark and tied for fourth in the ECAC East league race. The Hawks, who also finished third in the Northeast-10 Conference regular season, surged to their ninth NE-10 Championship with a victory over Saint Michael's College in the tournament final on Feb. 28.
