Senior forward Cory Conacher of the Canisius College hockey team earned second-team All-Atlantic Hockey honors on Thursday night at the league's banquet, becoming just the second player in the program's history to be selected to the all-conference team on two occasions.
Conacher, who earned first-team honors and was named the Atlantic Hockey Player of the Year last season, led the Griffs with 42 points, 23 goals and eight power-play tallies during the 2010-11 campaign to go along with 19 assists. He became the first player in the program's history with two seasons of 40-plus points and 20-plus goals, while his 23 scores are the most in the program's Division I history.
Setting or matching 11 school records during his career, Conacher will go down as one of the best to wear the Blue and Gold in the program's history. He owns the school's standards with 147 career points, 62 career goals and 12 game-winning tallies. In addition to his goals record set this season, Conacher also owns single-season marks in points (53), assists (33) and game-winning tallies (5), set during his junior campaign.
Conacher joins former teammate Carl Hudson as the only two players in the program's history to earn all-conference honors in two different seasons.
