BRUNSWICK, Maine - Three members of the Bowdoin College men's ice hockey team have been honored with NESCAC Postseason recognition in All-Conference Teams announced late last week. Bowdoin's George Papachristopoulos (Dollard-des-Ormeaux, Que.) and Jon Landry (Montreal, Que.) grabbed First-Team honors, while Adam Dann (Burlington, Vt.) was tabbed as a Second-Team choice.
Papachristopoulos was named the First-Team goaltender following a record-setting senior campaign. He posted a 2.41 goals-against-average and .916 save percentage in over 1,369 minutes played. His five shutouts this season were a Bowdoin single-season record and his six career blank-sheets set the school's all-time record. He finishes his career among the best netminders in Bowdoin history, posting the school's best-ever career goals-against-average (2.45), playing 3,720 minutes (fourth), with a .910 save percentage (seventh). His 39 career victories rank third all-time at Bowdoin.
Jon Landry proved to be one of Bowdoin's top point-scoring threats during his career, despite moving to a defensive position in the Polar Bear system this year. His 16 goals, 22 assists, 38 points, six powerplay tallies and three game-winners were all team-highs and his 121 career points rank him 16th on Bowdoin's prestigous all-time scoring list.
Adam Dann received his third All-NESCAC honor in making the Second-Team this season. He was second on the squad with 29 points and tied Landry with team highs in powerplay goals (6) and game-winners (3). He closes out his career with 110 points, scoring 58 goals. His point total ranks 22nd all-time at Bowdoin, while his goal total is 11th in Bowdoin history.
The Polar Bears finished the 2005-06 campaign with a record of 17-7-3, placing third in the NESCAC regular season standings. They reached the NESCAC Tournament championship game following a 3-1 win over Trinity College in the Semifinal contest and reached the NESCAC Final for the second straight season.
