This season Anthony Beauregard, Carl Neill and Massimo Carozza menaced the OUA men’s hockey conference with their offensive prowess, so it comes as no surprise that they earned five honours between them when league announced its major awards and all-stars on Thursday afternoon.
Beauregard, a second-year centre from St. Damase, Que., is the OUA’s MVP. He scored 19 goals and added 41 assists for 60 points to lead the OUA and U SPORTS in scoring. His closest competitor in the university hockey ranks was 14 points behind him. He was also a first team OUA East all-star.
Joining Beauregard on the first all-star team is rookie defenceman Carl Neill. The Lachute, Que. native is the top scoring defender in U SPORTS. He had five goals and 26 assists for 31 points in 28 games. He ranked third in OUA and ninth in U SPORTS for assists this season. Neill was also named to the OUA East all-rookie team.
It’s not easy playing in the shadows behind Beauregard, but Carozza definitely made an impression on the OUA coaches who named him to the all-rookie team. The Montrealer collected 15 goals and 20 assists for 35 points this year. He was the third-leading scorer in the OUA and ranked 11th in the country.
You can catch the talented trio at Concordia’s Ed Meagher Arena one last time this season. The Stingers will host the York Lions on Friday at 7:30 p.m. The winner earns a berth at the national championship next week in Fredericton.
