Watertown Daily Times: Reported senior forward Shea Guthrie was named the Most Valuable Player at the Clarkson University men's hockey team's annual awards banquet Saturday night in the paper Sunday afternoon.
Guthrie, a New York Islanders draft pick, finished second on the team in scoring this year with 13 goals and 14 assists in 30 games. Guthrie also had the game-winning goal in 40 percent of Clarkson's wins this season.
Senior co-captain Tyrell Mason won the Paul J. Pilon Award, which goes to the player who excels both academically and athletically.
