Kerrigan and Scavotto were part of a list of 1,261 student-athletes across all three Divisions of the NCAA to earn the accolade, which recognizes those who achieved a 3.60 GPA and participated in 40 percent of their team's games in 2016-17. The 2016-17 season marked the first year the AHCA named All-American Scholars.

Scavotto is a junior psychology major from East Falmouth, Mass. and was Saint Anselm's primary goaltender last season. In 20 starts, she was 17-1-2 with a 1.14 goals-against average and .918 save percentage. Scavotto was named the New England Hockey Conference (NEHC) Open MVP and to the NEHC All-Academic Team. She has been named to the Saint Anselm Dean's List in all four of her semesters on the Hilltop.

Kerrigan graduated from Saint Anselm in May with a degree in business and finance. As a senior, he set career-highs in assists (13) and points (17) and was named a Second Team All-Northeast-10 Conference honoree. Throughout his career, Kerrigan was named to the Dean's List and NE10 Commissioner's Honor Roll in all eight semesters and was a three-time NE10 and ECAC East All-Academic Team pick.
