These awards are a reflection on our entire group, and speak to the work that Owen, Brendan, Mathieu, and each of their teammates put in throughout the year as well.”
Brisson, a University of Michigan commit, led league rookies and ranked second in the USHL in scoring with 59 points (24G, 35A) in 45 games played.
