WAUKESHA, Wis. – The Concordia University Wisconsin Men's Hockey team had another record-setting season on the ice, once again setting a new mark for most wins in a season. Another tradition of Falcons Hockey has been academic success, one they continued in 2016-17.

CUW placed 12 players on the NCHA All-Academic Team, as the league announced those honors last week. The Falcons and Finlandia each tallied 12 All-Academic honors, tied for second-most in the league. In order to receive All-Academic status, a player must be of at least sophomore status and have a cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher.

Seniors Tanner Bull (Brooklin, Ontario) and Josh Herrington (Aurora, Ontario) earned All-Academic honors for the third straight year, while fellow senior Brandt Weldon (The Pas, Manitoba) landed his first All-Academic award.

Second-year selections for CUW were juniors Travis Marit (Assiniboia, Saskatchewan) and Jared Pilet (Seattle, Wash.). Junior Justin Coachman (Rochester, N.Y.) received All-Academic status for the first time, as did sophomores Nicholas Erb (London, Ontario), Adam Fauchoux (Prince Albert, Saskatchewan), Nick Malvin (Ham Lake, Minn.), Jack Romanuik (Melfort, Saskatchewan), Stefen Seel (Invermere, British Columbia) and Eric Therrien (Willow Bunch, Saskatchewan).
