East Lansing, Mich. First-year blueliner Torey Krug (Livonia, Mich.) has been named to the CCHA All-Rookie Team, as announced Monday by the league office. In addition, fellow freshman Derek Grant ( Abbotsford, BC) was an All-Rookie Team Honorable Mention pick.

For the first time since 1997 and second time ever, six different CCHA schools had one student-athlete named to the 2010 CCHA All-Rookie Team. This marks the 22nd year that the conference has named an all-rookie team. Fifteen freshmen garnered at least one vote. Determined by a vote of the conference’s head coaches, the team will be honored at the 2010 CCHA Awards on Thursday, March 18, at the Fox Theatre in Detroit.

 

 

Krug led all CCHA rookie rearguards with 16 points, finishing tied for eighth among all rookies and tied for fifth among all CCHA defensemen. Krug was named CCM CCHA Rookie of the Week once, CCM CCHA Rookie of the Month twice and National Rookie of the Month once.    

 

Grant has played on the Spartans' top line all season, and has an 11-18-29 scoring line to make him one of the top-scoring rookies in Rick Comley's tenure at MSU. He was named the CCHA Rookie of the Month for October.
