WCHA honors for McCabe and Navin
Wisconsin sophomore defenseman Jake McCabe (Eau Claire, Wis.) was named to the 2013 Western Collegiate Hockey Association Third Team, the league announced Thursday, while a program-best 12 Badgers were honored as members of the 2012-13 All-WCHA Academic Team.
A physical rearguard, McCabe anchors the WCHA's top-ranked defense in league play and the fifth-ranked defense in the nation. Wisconsin top scoring blueliner has three goals and 17 points in 32 games played, and has averaged 0.53 points per game in conference play this season, which ranks 13th in the conference among defenseman. He is plus-9 on the season.
Earlier this season, McCabe captained Team USA to the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championship. Named to the World Junior Championship Media All-Star Team, McCabe finished the tournament third among defensemen with six points on three goals and three assists, while also ranking second with a plus-9.
McCabe is also one of a program-best 12 student-athletes named to the 2012-13 WCHA All-Academic Team. The group includes junior Tyler Barnes (Eagan, Minn.), junior Chase Drake (Mosinee, Wis.), junior Joe Faust (Bloomington, Minn.), junior Gavin Hartzog (Pewaukee, Wis.), senior Ryan Little (Fond du Lac, Wis.), sophomore Jake McCabe (Eau Claire, Wis.), junior Michael Mersch (Park Ridge, Ill.), sophomore Brad Navin (Waupaca, Wis.), sophomore Landon Peterson (Oregon, Wis.), sophomore Joel Rumpel (Swift Current, Saskatchewan), junior Frankie Simonelli (Bensenville, Ill.) and junior Mark Zengerle (Rochester, N.Y.).
Wisconsin hosts Minnesota Duluth in the WCHA first-round playoffs (best-of-three weekend) tonight at 8:00PM ET.
