Farmington Hills, Mich. – Notre Dame forwards Connor Dunlop (Jr., St. Louis, Mo.) and David Inman (Sr., Toronto, Ont.) were named honorable mention selections to the 2001-02 All-CCHA team. Dunlop came up one vote short of making the second team while Inman was four votes shy of a spot on the second team.
Teammate Morgan Cey (Fr., Wilkie, Sask.) was also named honorable mention to the CCHA all-rookie team for the 2001-02 season.
Dunlop turned in one of the top seasons by a Notre Dame player during the 2001-02 season as he collected nine goals with 33 assists for 42 points. In the CCHA, Dunlop finished second in scoring with nine goals and 27 assists for 36 points. The talented center iceman’s 33 assists are the most by a Notre Dame player since the Irish returned to the CCHA in 1992-93 and the 42 points are one less than Jamie Ling’s 43 in 1994-95.
Inman finished the year ranked fifth in the CCHA in league scoring with 14 goals and 17 assists for 31 points. Overall, he turned in career-highs in goals (17), assists (18), points (35) and power play goals (7). Earlier this week he was named to the CCHA’s all-Academic Team.
Cey finished second in the voting for the all-Rookie goaltender’s spot to Ferris State’s Mike Brown. The freshman goaltender was eighth in CCHA games with a 2.87 goals against average and was 11-9-3 in league games with a .907 save percentage. Overall, Cey is 13-12-3 overall with a 2.90 goals against and a .905 save percentage. He has started 20 consecutive games for the Irish since Dec. 7, 2001.
