TAMPA, Fla. – Five CCHA players were selected as members of the 2012 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award First Team and Second Team.

Minnesota Duluth All-American forward Jack Connolly was selected as the 2012 Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award winner. The announcement and trophy presentation were made by Lowe’s, an official Corporate Partner of the NCAA, during the NCAA Men’s Frozen Four®.
The award, chosen by a nationwide vote of Division I men’s ice hockey head coaches, national media and fans, is given annually to the most outstanding senior student-athlete in NCAA Division I men’s ice hockey. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition.
An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
