UNH’s Yandle named RBK Second-Team All-American
Brian Yandle

Yandle was one of four defenseman named to the team and he was one of nine Hockey East players to earn All-America distinction this year.

He recently signed an amateur tryout with the Lowell Lock Monsters of the American Hockey League and has played two games since signing with Lowell.

Yandle is the sixth player and first blueliner in UNH hockey history to earn All-America honors in multiple seasons. The five previous Wildcats to accomplish that feat were: Colin Hemingway, Ty Conklin, Jason Krog, Ralph Cox and Gordie Clark.

Yandle was a Second-Team Hockey East All-Star in his final season at UNH. He ranked fourth on the team in scoring with 30 points (6g, 24a), skating in all 40 games for the Wildcats. His 24 assists were third-best on the 'Cats roster and his 166 shots ranked first on the team. He ranked 16th in the nation among Division I blueliners with 0.75 points per game. Yandle was also one of 15 finalists for the Walter Brown Award, given annually to the top American-born college hockey player in New England.

In his UNH career, he skated in 153 career games and posted 99 career points (31g, 68a), which ranks third all-time among blueliners in the program's history. His 153 games played as a Wildcat is only five short of a school record set by former 'Cat Darren Haydar (158 GP).

Yandle posted a career-high 35 points in 41 games as a junior and was a Second-Team All-America selection and a Second-Team Hockey East All-Star last season.
