Hartford, Conn. - Trinity College men's hockey junior captain Liam Feeney (Foxboro, Mass.) has been named as a semifinalist for the 19th Annual Joe Concannon Award, as announced by the Gridiron Club of Greater Boston. The Concannon award, presented annually to the best American-born NCAA Division II/III hockey player in New England, was established in 2001 shortly after the passing of the longtime writer for The Boston Globe, who had a great passion for the game of college hockey while always advocating strongly for amateur athletics. Eighteen teams are represented in this year's semifinalist class, including seven from the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC). The list of nominees includes 17 forwards, six defensemen and two goalies.
Feeney is tied for the league lead in power-play points with nine, and also tied for second in assists with 12. He ranks third among the defenseman scoring leaders with 12 points. The Foxboro native was named to the New England Hockey Writers Division II/III All-Star team as well as the All-NESCAC First Team last season as a junior and was also named as a semifinalist for the Concannon award. As a rookie in 2016-17, he was named to the United States College Hockey Online (USCHO.com) Division III Men's Ice Hockey National All-Rookie Team. He has played in every game possible in his career.
The Bantams, led by Head Coach Matt Greason (8th season) and ranked No. 11 in the nation, are 12-3-5 on the year ahead of a pair of home games this weekend, versus Colby on Friday night and versus Bowdoin on Saturday afternoon.
