Won the CCHA Championship as a member of the UND Fighting Sioux, and will take on Bemidji Statein the NCAA Midwest Regional Final on March 28, 2009 [Ed. Note: They lost to Bemidji]. Won the CCHA's Terry Flanagan Memorial Award for perseverance, dedication, and courage.
Louie Caporusso (2007, 3 [90 overall]): Second-place in fan voting for the Hobey Baker Award (click here to vote) with about 21% of the vote so far.

Craig Shira (undrafted): Scored 2G and 3A as the Vancouver Giants swept the Prince George Cougars to move on to the second round of the WHL playoffs.
