Bulldog Captain is Player of Month
WAKEFIELD, Mass. – The last of the hockey season awards was announced today, and it was only appropriate that the leader of the national championship team should receive the national honor. Yale senior Andrew Miller, who led the Bulldogs to their first Frozen Four title, has been named the Hockey Commissioners' Association National Division I Player of the Month for March/April.
Miller, the team captain, hit the net six times and had 15 points over that span while earning Frozen Four Most Outstanding Player honors. He scored the overtime game-winner in the national semifinal against UMass Lowell and then scored against Quinnipiac in the championship contest. He finished the Frozen Four with two goals and four points while moving into the top spot on Yale's career assist list with 114.
The Yale forward, a CCM All-America pick who was signed by the Edmonton Oilers last week, had a career-high 18 goals and 41 points this season. Miller (Bloomfield Hills, Mich.) finished fifth on the school's career points list with 156.
