Senior CLASS Award | February 17, 2017

Finalists announced for the 2016-17 Senior CLASS Award

  Denver's Will Butcher was named as one of the finalists.

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. – Ten NCAA men’s hockey student-athletes who excel both on and off the ice were selected as finalists today for the 2016-17 Senior CLASS Award in collegiate hockey. To be eligible for the award, student-athletes must be classified as NCAA Division I seniors and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition. The complete list of finalists follows this release. 

An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their athletic platforms to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities. 

The finalists were chosen by national media from the list of candidates announced in January. Nationwide fan voting begins immediately to help select the winner, and fans are encouraged to submit votes online at the Senior CLASS Award website through March 27. Fan votes will be combined with those of the media and Division I head coaches to determine the winners. The Senior CLASS Award recipients will be announced during the 2017 NCAA Men’s Frozen Four.
