MADISON, Wis. (Blugolds.com) – Two UW-Eau Claire men's hockey players were named to the 2011-12 All-WIAC Men's Ice Hockey First Team, conference officials announced today.
Selected to this year's first team were defenseman Tyler Jundt (Sr.-Williston, N.D.) and forward Jordan Singer (Jr.-Lino Lakes, Minn./Centennial). Both were named to the first team last season as well.
Jundt is part of a Blugold defense that has allowed 679 shots while the Blugolds have taken 856. He has nine assists on the season, tied for the second most on the team, and 12 points, tied for fifth most on the team. Jundt has two power-play goals this year, which leads the team. Jundt was also named the conference's Max Sparger Scholar-Athlete.
Singer leads the Blugolds this season with 14 goals and is tied for first on the team with 20 points. He leads Eau Claire with three game-winning goals, one of which came in overtime of the Blugolds' second NCHA quarterfinal game last weekend, which allowed the Blugolds to advance to the semifinals for just the fourth time in history.
Three others were named All-WIAC honorable mention picks. They were forwards Ross Andersen (Fr.-River Falls, Wis.) and Tyler Romasco (Sr.-Perry, Ohio), and goalie Brandon Stephenson (Jr.-Saline, Mich.).
