Santorelli Named as CCHA Player of the Year Finalist

Fresh off of his assignment as a First Team All-CCHA forward, Mike Santorelli has been named as one of the three finalists for the RBC Financial Group CCHA Player of the Year award.

The other two finalists are Michigan forward TJ Hensick and Notre Dame goaltender David Brown.

Hensick, then a sophomore, was a nominee in 2005 for CCHA Player of the Year but was beat out by NMU senior goaltender Tuomas Tarkki, the last Wildcat to win the award.

The full release can be found here.

Other awards include Coach of the Year, Rookie of the Year, Offensive Defenseman of the Year, Defensive Defenseman of the Year and Defensive Forward of the Year.

There are no Wildcat finalists in any other categories.
