Last Friday at the NCAA Frozen Four in Philadelphia, UMass Lowell sophomore goaltender Connor Hellebuyck was named the inaugural winner of the Mike Richter Award as the nation’s top collegiate netminder.

A recent signee of the Winnipeg Jets and the 2014 U.S. National Team, Hellebuyck led the nation in goals-against average (1.79) and save percentage (.941) for the second consecutive season and had as many shutouts (12) as losses in his 53-game career.
