After a stellar season at Quinnipiac University, Pens goaltender Eric Hartzell continues to receive accolades, this time reportedly being named USA College Hockey Player of the Year – according to the Pens’ website.
Hartzell, 24, signed a one-year entry-level deal with Pittsburgh following his team’s run in the NCAA Frozen Four and was well deserving of the award.
Logging a record of 30-7-5, Hartzell finished the season with a 1.57 goals against average and a .933 save percentage.
He has also won the USCHO Player of the Year, 2013 ECAC Player of the Year, ECAC Hockey Ken Dryden Goaltender of the Year, and a Hobey Baker Award – which is for the best college hockey player.
Now he’ll continue to be a part of the Pens Stanley Cup run – what a year.
