BOSTON – Gridiron Club of Greater Boston president Bob Norton announced on Wednesday morning that 18 players have been named semi-finalists for the 14th Joe Concannon Award, presented annually to the best American-born college hockey player in New England playing at the Division II-III level.
Senior forward Shane Gorman (Trumbull, Conn.) will look to become the third Norwich University men's ice hockey player to win the prestigious award. Colin Mulvey '13 was last year's winner and Keith Aucoin '01 was the inaugural Concannon Award winner in 2001.
Gorman is enjoying a breakout final season in the Maroon & Gold, tallying eight goals and 19 assists for 27 points. He leads the team in assists this season and just recently played in his 100th career game last weekend against New England College. Gorman has 28 goals and 49 assists for 77 points in his career.
The Gridiron Club plans to announce the finalists and winner of the 14th Joe Concannon Award in March, prior to the start of NCAA Frozen Four on March 21. The presentation of the award will be at the New England Hockey Writers dinner in April.
