Inside College Hockey is proud to announce
its sixth annual INCH All-America teams. The selections
were made by Inside College Hockey editors and staff, with
input from media and coaches from around the country.
The INCH All-America teams are not affiliated
with those of the American Hockey Coaches Association, which
will release its East and West All-Americans next week.
We prefer to see college hockey as a national
game — thus our first-, second-, and third-team All-Americans
are not divided on regional lines.
2006-07 ALL-AMERICA FIRST TEAM
J-P Lamoureux North Dakota
27-10-4, 1.64 GAA, .936 sv%
Lamoureux, who gave up two or fewer goals in 21 of
his 30 starts this season, is the first goalie to
lead the WCHA in both GAA and save percentage since
another former Sioux standout — Karl Goehring
— did it in 1999-2000. He also led the nation
in both categories.
41 GP, 6-31—37
The epitome of consistency on the blue line for the
Tigers, Hillen had no point streaks longer than six
games this season, but only had one scoreless stretch
of more than two games. In CC's last 17 games, he
recorded three goals and 17 assists
Mark Mitera Michigan
42 GP, 2-21—23
Mitera's offensive improvement was noticeable, but
his leadership and sound play in his own end have
been his most significant contributions. He plays
an average of nearly 25 minutes a game and has had
a negative plus-minus rating in just two of his team's
Ryan Jones Miami
42 GP, 31-18—49
An impressive mix of size and skill, Jones ranks
second in the country with 31 goals and shares the
national lead in game-winning goals with seven. Of
his 31 goals, 20 of them scored at even strength.
He finished strong, with at least one point in 13
of the RedHawks' last 17 contests.
Nathan Gerbe Boston College
41 GP, 30-30—60
The country's most exciting player, Gerbe ranks second
in the nation in goals and points. He scored an amazing
13-14—27 over a nine-game stretch between Nov.
30-Jan. 18, and has 7-7—14 during the Eagles'
current seven-game winning streak.
Kevin Porter Michigan
42 GP, 33-29—62
Porter staked his claim to the title of the nation's
best player early in the season by scoring 19-12—31
in the Wolverines' first 19 games — Michigan
was 17-2-0 with a pair of one-goal losses during that
span. The country's leader in goals and points, Porter
is also a sound defensive forward and an elite penalty
