Notre Dame, Ind. – Notre Dame senior alternate captain David Inman (Toronto, Ont.) has been selected to the Central Collegiate Hockey Association’s nine-man All-Academic team for the 2001-02 season.
Inman’s selection to the team marks the seventh consecutive year that Notre Dame has had at least one player on the league’s all-Academic team.
To be eligible for the award, a player must have completed one academic year and have a 3.00 grade point average on a 4.00 scale. The award is voted on by the league’s faculty representatives.
An honorable mention selection last season, Inman owns a 3.524 grade point average as a finance major in the Mendoza College of Business.
On the ice, Inman has turned in a career season with 17 goals and 18 assists for 35 points as Notre Dame prepares for the opening round of the CCHA playoffs at Nebraska-Omaha this weekend March 8-10.
Joining Inman on the all-Academic squad are:
Bobby Andrews Sr. Forward Alaska Fairbanks Political Science
David Cousineau Jr. Defenseman Western Michigan Integrated Supply Mgmt.
Brad Fast Jr. Defenseman Michigan State General Management
Adam Hall Sr. Forward Michigan State Finance
David Inman Sr. Forward Notre Dame Finance
Miguel Lafleche Jr. Forward Ohio State Electrical Engineering
Peter Michelutti Jr. Defenseman Northern Michigan Accounting
Daniel Samuelsson Sr. Defenseman Nebraska-Omaha Exercise Science
Jared Sylvestre So. Forward Alaska Fairbanks Mechanical Engineering
Notre Dame defensemen Neil Komadoski (So., St. Louis, Mo.) and Tom Galvin (So., Miller Place, N.Y.) received Special Mention as they were nominated for consideration for the team.
Since 1995-96, the Irish have had at least one player named to the team, something no other CCHA team can say. In all, the Irish have had nine players selected to the all-Academic Team since returning to the CCHA in 1992-93. The list includes: Carl Picconatto (’92-’93), Garry Gruber (’95-’96), Steve Noble (’96-’97, ’97-’98), Forrest Karr and Aniket Dhadphale (’98-’99), Andy Jurkowski (’99-’00) and Dan Carlson (’00-’01). During that 10-year span, only Western Michigan (11) has produced more CCHA All-Academic selections than Notre Dame’s nine.
