Flagdude u reply so quick u Have a blackberry or an iPhone lol

Actually, I'm surprised that my phone actually has a camera on it. I grew up where there was no cell phone service, so my first one was in college. I'm actually quite technologically primitive.

Allen York a Finalist for Ken Dryden Award
Sophomore netminder one of three in running for ECAC Hockey honor

TROY, N.Y. – ECAC Hockey has announced its finalists for the Ken Dryden Award as the Goaltender of the Year and Rensselaer student-athlete Allen York has been selected as one of three finalists by the league’s coaches. Also nominated for this year’s award is Cornell University senior Ben Scrivens and Union College freshman Keith Kinkaid.

A native of Wetaskiwin, Alb., York went 14-13-4 this season, finishing fourth in ECAC Hockey in goals against average (2.54) and sixth in save percentage (.911). His 825 total saves and 1934:41 minutes played were both most in the league. A sophomore, he played in 81.7% of the team’s games, recording one shutout – a 4-0 win over then sixth-ranked Yale on January 30.

York, a former standout with the Camrose Kodiaks of the Alberta Junior Hockey League (AJHL), was 9-7-3 in 20 ECAC Hockey contests, posting a 2.26 goals against average, which was good for second in the conference. Playing in 87.3% of the club’s conference games, his .919 save percentage was also second best in the league.

A sixth-round (158th overall) pick of the Columbus Blue Jackets in the 2007 National Hockey League (NHL) Entry Draft, York has a 19-23-4 career record at Rensselaer, playing in 49 games. He has logged 2848:00 minutes and allowed 128 goals for a 2.70 goals against average. He has amassed a .907 save percentage, while recording two shutouts.

York played in 16 games in his rookie year, compiling a 5-10-0 record. He had a 3.02 goals against average and a .901 save percentage. His season was highlighted by a sweep of Dartmouth in the opening round of the ECACH Playoffs, followed by his first career shutout in the Engineers’ 1-0 victory Cornell in Game 1 of the Quarterfinals.

The Engineers finished the 2009-10 season with an 18-17-4 overall record, including a 10-9-3 mark in ECAC Hockey play. They earned home ice in the conference playoffs for the first time since 2005-06, but fell to Brown in Game 3 of a best-of-three First Round series.

Dryden is the most anti-climactic award on the list. It always goes to the first team All-ECAC and the two runners up, not surprisingly enough, are always the second and third team.

Although I didn't pick it on vicb's thing, I'm not surprised at all. Brown did their homework on Yale, and definitely used their play against us to their advantage last night.

Jenny and I are about 45 minutes from there-and we are getting between 4 and 6 inches of rain over a 36 hour period. A few weeks ago and with colder temperatures this could be 5 feet of snow:eek: Horrible here-how could they ever move the ECAC Hockey tournament down here?

Pirri got shafted in the Rookie of the Year selection, in my opinion. They picked D'Amigo and Kinkaid (both expected) along with Harvard's franchise player, Leblanc. I watched both play online and I thought Pirri looked better.

I saw all of RPI's home games and four road games. Jerry is ahead of Pirri in playing hard at both ends of the ice, every time he goes over the boardds. D'Amigo is ahead of Brandon physically also...which allows him to do more things with the puck. I'm guessing that is why he beat out Pirri. Don't get me wrong, I love Pirri and once he adds some bulk, he will be a truly scary player to defend...the kid has amazing instincts and an wicked release.

I have attended every ECAC tourney dating back to the 1st one in Lake Placid. If the AC event is conducted without RPI (god help us) there is a very good chance that my streak will end. :mad:

Jen and I will go if RPI is one of the teams.Truthfully I would rather drive the 3 hours to Albany than the 45 minutes to AC.
