April 7, 2017
A trio of Big Ten standouts were named CCM/AHCA All-Americans, announced on Friday at the NCAA Men's Division I Frozen Four in Chicago, Ill. Minnesota’s Tyler Sheehy received first-team All-America plaudits, while Ohio State’s Mason Jobst and Wisconsin’s Luke Kunin were named second-team All-Americans.
Sheehy earned first-team All-America plaudits after registering 53 points (20 goals, 33 assists) in 38 games. An All-Big Ten first team selection, Sheehy ranked among the top ten in the nation in points (53) and assists (33) at eighth and 10th, respectively. The Burnsville, Minn., native was tabbed Big Ten Player of the Year after leading the conference with 14 goals and sharing the points lead with Ohio State’s Mason Jobst with 34 points in conference play. The sophomore averaged a conference-leading 1.70 points per game in conference action to pace an offense that led all Big Ten schools with 3.95 goals per game in conference contests.
Jobst enjoyed his best season with 55 points (19 goals, 36 assists) in 39 games, becoming the first Buckeye since 2003 to register a 50-point campaign. The first-team All-Big Ten selection ended the season with 30 points on the power play to tie for third in the NCAA, with nine goals and 21 assists. The Speedway, Ind., native’s effort helped the Buckeyes to an NCAA Regional berth for the first time since 2009.
Kunin was named a second-team All-American after finishing the 2016-17 campaign as the Badgers’ leading scorer with 38 points (22 goals, 16 assists) in 35 games. The Chesterfield, Mo., native captained the Badgers to a Big Ten Tournament championship game appearance and Team USA to a gold medal at the 2017 IIHF World Junior Championship.
