Stempniak, Lewis and Welch make ECACHL Pre-Season Teams
The ECAC annually puts out their two "Pre-Season All-Conference Team" lists about this time of the year. One list is the selection by the ECAC head coaches, while the other is the list is the selections from the media covering the ECAC.
Three NHL prospects made both lists: Senior forward (and Blues prospect) Lee Stempniak and sophomore defenseman (and Thrashers prospect) Grant Lewis, both from Dartmouth as well as Harvard senior defenseman and team captain (and Penguins prospect) Noah Welch.
Also making one of the lists is Dartmouth junior forward (and Rangers prospect) Hugh Jessiman.
