Miller Named CCM All-America
Bulldog Adds To Accolades
PITTSBURGH, Pa. - The American Hockey Coaches Association announced the 2012-13 CCM Hockey All-Americans today at the Frozen Four and Yale senior forward Andrew Miller was a second-team East selection. Miller and his teammates play for a national title against Quinnipiac tomorrow night at the Consol Energy Center.
Last night, during the Bulldogs' 3-2 overtime semifinal win over UMass Lowell, Miller tied the school's career assist record on Yale's first goal and then won the game at 6:59 of the extra session on a great move that ended up No. 2 on today's Sports Center Top 10.
Miller adds his first All-America honors to his long list of accolades over a career of team success wearing blue and white. Yale's captain was named First-Team All-ECAC and the Ivy League Player of the Year. He grabbed those honors while compiling a career-high 16 goals and 37 points.
One of the best passers in the history of the program, Miller's feeds have often directly led to goals. In fact, 18 of his 22 assists this year are primary. He has 113 overall and is tied with Bob Brooke '83 for the Yale lead.
The two-time, first-team All-ECAC forward has 152 points (6th at Yale) in 140 games with one more left to play.
The Bulldogs (21-12-3) and Bobcats drop the puck at 7 p.m. Saturday in a contest airing live on ESPN.
