The 2016-2017 Regular Season is in the record books and as we look forward to the ECRHA Championships next week, now is a good time to look back on some record breaking performances.
In Division 1, for the second straight year, Tyler Kraft of Neumann rewrote the record book. His 92 point regular season was good for second best of all-time, falling just short of his record 97 point season in 2015-2016. Kraft wasn't done, as his 61 assists tied the mark set by Nathan Gerger of Pittsburgh who tallied 61 during the 2014-2015 season.
Goaltender Dustin Muccio-Schrimpe didn’t set any new records, but his save percentage mark of .902 was good for 6th all-time. Michael Maczynski of Neumann University holds the all-time record of .927. Muccio-Schrimpe also broke into the top ten all-time list with shutouts with 3, matching his total from last season. Maczynski once again hold that record after posting 7 shutouts during the 2013-2014 season.
In Division 2, a trio of goaltenders joined the top ten save percentage list this season. Rory Buckley of Stony Brook and Matthew Klarnet of Endicott finished tied for 6th all-time with a mark of .890, while Brandon Pearlman of Northeastern finished in 8th with a mark of .888. With so much success on the goaltending side of things, not a single offensive performance in D2 cracked the top ten list.
In Division 3, the story is all about Farmingdale goaltender Daniel Perepezko, who shattered the all-time save percentage mark of .910 held by Mitchell Reinhold of Penn State during their National Championship season of 2009-2010. Perepezko’s new mark of .956 could be a mark that remains untouched for a long time. Perepezko fell just short of breaking Matt Shackleton’s record for shutouts during a season, which stands and 6, but his 5 shutouts are good for second all-time.
Division 4 saw quite a few record breaking performances during the 2016-2017 season. Dan Barnaby of Lock Haven broke the old assist record with his 28 assist regular season. Joining him on the top ten list was teammate Tyler Gilbert, whose 25 assists are good for third and Andrew Parrish who’s 22 assists ranked him 9th.
Andrew Parrish of Niagara’s 48 points ranks him 6th all-time, followed by Tyler Gilbert with 45 points in 8th and Sameul Murray of RIT slipping into the 10th spot with 42 points. Syracuse’s Anthony Bellman’s 27 goals was good for 10th all-time. Joseph Tedesco of St. Joseph’s University was awesome in goal this season, posting a save percentage of .834, good for 8th all-time.
