Jake Henry, Connecticut College
Jake Henry helped lead the Camels to one of the most remarkable and unpredictable turnarounds during the 2006-2007 college hockey season. A tri-captain and leader of the defense, Henry guided the Camels to a 10-13-1 record (9-9-1 NESCAC) and their first post-season berth in eight years. Henry was honored as the co-recipient of the Anita L DeFrantz Award.
On December 12, Henry propelled the Camels to victory with a third period score against a previously-undefeated UMass Dartmouth team, handing the Corsairs one of their two losses of the season. In recognition of his performance, The Boston Herald named Henry its #1 star of the week. Connecticut College head coach Jim Ward commended the efforts of his battle-tested blue-liner.
"Jake's senior year has proven to be his best as a member of the Connecticut College Ice Hockey program as a player, leader and student-athlete," Ward stated. "Jake made strong contributions in all three zones of the ice, scoring goals in critical moments and playing a significant role defensively in the first and last minutes of each period."
Henry received his degree in Classics.
